Film: 5 Broken Cameras
Film: 5 Broken Cameras
and DNTA AGM 2013
Many of our members and others saw the film "5 Broken Cameras" at the DCA on 19th June 2013. We had a discussion about this film before we started our AGM.
It raises some controversial issues and there was a strong hope that others in Dundee could see it and consider the ways in which occupation shapes the lives of those in Bil'in and in Nablus.

FBU Fire Equipment reaches Nablus
Fire engine for Nablus in Dundee City Square with Palestinian flag flying on Caird Hall
Update Dec 2011 The Nablus Fire Department have told us that all the equipment and the fire engine has been released by the Israelis and is now in Nablus. Hurrah!
The Fire Brigades Union, with support from Dundee-Nablus Twinning Association, set off from Dundee to take two fire appliances and lots of equipment to Nablus. All went well until one machine developed serious mechanical problems in Greece and had to be abandoned.
Fortunately all equipment (and drivers) could be accommodated on the remaining
machine which completed its journey. At least it got to the Israeli port of
Haifa where the appliance and equipment were impounded by the
Israeli authorities. This is very disappointing and we hope that
the delivery can soon be completed.
