No Way Through - If London Was the West Bank

This film was written and directed by my long-time friend, the fabulous Sheila 'Tequila' Menon, with Alexandra Monro and highlights the mobility restrictions imposed in the West Bank, which are limiting its habitants access to health care and therefore violating a fundamental human right. It won this year's Ctrl.Alt.Shift Film Competition

DO SOMETHING: support Medical Aid for Palestinians. Only this week, they reported that Magen David Adom (MDA) ambulances may not enter Palestinian neighbourhoods in East Jerusalem to transfer injured or sick persons to hospital without a police escort, even in life threatening situations. This violates the residents' right to life and health and has been condemned by Adalah, Physicians for Human Rights - Israel and Al Mezan Center for Human Rights.
