Naila and the Uprising

This was a free event, funded by Leeds Inspired.

Women are at the forefront when an uprising breaks out in 1987. Naila, an iron-willed young woman in Gaza, promotes non-violent struggle and must make a choice between love, family and freedom.

” I call on women all over the world, I call on Israeli mothers: double your efforts to lift the injustices from my people, so my son, and your son, and all children can live side by side.” Naila Ayesh
