Screening of Stealing A Nation, by John Pilger / 19 June 2013, 7pm
Screening of Stealing A Nation, by John Pilger
During the last two weeks of June, the award winning documentary Stealing A Nation, by John Pilger, will be shown at venues across Hackney. The film describes the struggle of the Chagossians, a population of 2000 or so people who were forcibly removed from their homes by the British government in the late sixties and early seventies. In doing so, it provides an insight into the particular form of democracy practised in Britain.
The screenings are free and all are welcome. The film is one hour long and will be followed by some discussion. Screenings are to be held at Pogo Café on Clarence Road, X Marks the Bökship on Cambridge Heath Road, Project/Number on Cazenove Road, The Russet on Amhurst Terrace.
