Voo?uit stands with the Palestinian people #FreePalestine

Arts Centre Voo?uit condemns the brutal Israeli assaults against the Palestinians and stands in solidarity with the Palestinian people who are rising up against seven decades of Israeli settler colonial violence. We endorse the words of Brigitte Herremans, expert on the Middle-East, researcher at the  Center for Human Rights of Ghent University and member of Voo?uit’s Board of Trustees:

“It is outrageous how Israel always lights the fuse and then blames the Palestinians. Proponents of equidistance or the equal treatment of both sides, whom we will hear frequently in the coming days, continue the injustice. There is no equality between an occupying power and an occupied population.”

Voo?uit stands in full support with its cultural partners in Palestina, among others with the Khashabi Theater and its artistic director Bashar Murkus and the Qattan Foundation.

“What is happening now in all of Palestine is the natural human response to years of occupation, injustice, dispossession, apartheid, racism and siege.”

Bashar Murkus
