Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign Statement
Thursday 21 May, 2009
Ken Loach and the Edinburgh International Film Festival are to be congratulated for distancing the EIFF publicly from the unwelcome embrace of the State of Israel, a state now widely understood to be committing grave crimes against the Palestinian people. Many who would have stayed away will now feel comfortable buying tickets for showings during this important cultural event.
