Bradford Batsheva Protest – 6 & 7 Nov
Event date: November 06, 2012 18:00
Don't Dance with Israeli Apartheid is organising demonstrations against Israeli State-funded Batsheva across the UK in November. Batsheva is part of the Brand Israel effort to shift attention away from Israel's crimes: ethnic cleansing and mass violence against the Palestinian people.

Bradford protest planning meeting
Venue: Desmond Tutu House, 2, Ash Grove/ Great Horton Road, opposite the Uni.
Time: Tuesday 30th October, 6pm.
We will be planning for the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) protest on 6th and 7th November outside the Alhambra, against the ‘brand Israel’ Batsheva dance company, who are due to perform on those dates.
If you care about the injustices of the Israeli apartheid regime, which has one set of rules for Israelis and another for Palestinians, then come and find out more. Stand up and be counted.

Leeds protest planning meeting
Venue: Central Leeds,
Time: 7:30 pm Tuesday 23rd October
A meeting will take place in central Leeds to discuss the Batsheva protest in Bradford. As quite a few people cannot get to meetings in Bradford but plan to attend the protests, we thought it would be a good idea to have a meeting here in Leeds to discuss how we can support the Bradford protests. Please attend if you can and circulate widely.
