The Madison-Rafah Sister City Project is hosting the Madison premiere of The Killing Zone, a 45-minute British documentary about conditions in Rafah and the murders of International Solidarity Movement workers Rachel Corrie and Tom Hurndall, and British TV journalist James Miller. The film was made soon after Corrie’s death and during the shootings of Hurndall and Miller.

Laura Gordon will speak at both showings. Laura went to Israel with the “Birthright Israel” program, but wound up spending nearly a year in Rafah with the ISM trying to protect Palestinian civilians.

Admission to these benefit showings is free and open to the public, but a collection will be taken for Rafah relief projects. These projects will be guided by our recent delegation to Rafah, and will address education, medical aid, and emergency assistance to orphans and families.

Co-sponsored by WORT 89.9FM and the Madison-Arcatao (El Salvador) Sister City Project
