non solo visione ma anche riflessione…

Normally the vision of the documentary Fartun is accompanied by a long discussion with the audience during which we deepen the history of the documentary itself and propose a critical reflection on its contents. Because of the current situation, it is not possible to organize a public event, (we broadcast it Saturday, March 21 from 8 am and until midnight streaming on youtube and facebook) we thought to share with you articles, contents and videos to deepen the reflection and leave you some questions. If you like you can leave your thoughts in the comments to the article and while watching the documentary. It will be a pleasure to read them and feel all a little closer.

International day of solidarity for the Palestinian people

International day of solidarity with the Palestinian people
is a recurrence
by the United Nations and takes place every year
the November 29th to commemorate the anniversary
of the adoption of Resolution 181
of the United Nations General Assembly (1947).

The original plan of sharing the former British
Mandate of Palestine predicted the birth
of two states, one Jewish and one Arab,
with Jerusalem under international control.
This resolution did not prevent the outbreak
of the first Arab-Israeli war, which will lead
to the creation of the State of Israel and to the Palestinian Nakba

Since 1948 numerous UN resolutions and recommendations have sought to facilitate the peace process and the withdrawal of Israel from the occupied territories of the West Bank, where today there are about 413,000 Israeli settlers in the area C (zone of the Palestinian territories under full Israeli control) and 215,000 in East Jerusalem. This brings the population of Israeli settlers in the West Bank to around 630,000 individuals located in 143 towns 11 of which in East Jerusalem, plus 113 outposts.

Giosef Torino is close to the Palestinian people in different forms and expressions.
For years we have been working with Palestinian associations such as New Generation Palestine , Loesje PalestineNational YWCA of Palestine and The Palestinian Circus School with youthworker training projects and youth exchanges.

We solidarize with the Palestinian people in their struggle for the return of the millions of refugees in their own land and reject the apartheid and discrimination policies of the Israeli government.

On Going Events

Doc | Free streaming of "Fartun" for the project "countHERnarrative"

Saturday, March 21 | 08.00 AM – 23.00

Since 1966, 21 March is the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, when the UN General Assembly after the murder of 69 people during the Sharpeville peaceful demonstration in South Africa.

On 21 March 2020, from 8.00 am until midnight, through its own channels Giosef Torino and Centro Studi sereno Regis, will bring to your homes the mini-documentary "Fartun", produced as part of the project "countHERnarrative" and realized by’ArabWomenMediaCenter, association of #Amman that deals with the professional growth of women in the media sector.

The documentary is a window to look to migration from another point of view, the women one. Migrant women, strong women with a story to tell, without filters or preconceptions. Specifically, the project follow two objectives of sustainable development (SDG 5: Achieving gender equality and emancipating all women and girls and SDG 10: Reducing economic inequalities within and outside national borders).

Since more than 40 years associations, governments and individuals have celebrated this date in the most diverse ways, but this year will obviously be different. The health emergency created by the spread of COVID-19 in Italy and in various parts of Europe and the World, does not allow the realization of a public celebration on 21 March.

#istayathome, but that doesn’t mean we can’t find a way to remember the anti-racist message that he’s been carrying for 44 years on March 21.

Follow Fartun on our channels and celebrate together the day of 21 March, a way to be together in a difficult period for our country, but which perhaps makes us more aware of the difficulties and limitations that other peoples have had to face in history.

This project was produced with the financial contribution of the European Union and the Piedmont Region, through the Consortium of Piedmontese NGOs within Frame, Voice, Report!.
