SPECIAL PUBLIC EVENT 06/03/2014:

Palestine Stories: A presentation about the Freedom Bus by founder Ben Rivers

Tuesday June 3, 7:30pm at Deyo Hall, 6 Broadhead Avenue, New Paltz, NY (next to Rail Trail—not on campus!)



 The Freedom Bus, a project of the West Bank’s legendary Freedom Theatre, engages thousands of Palestinians and visitors from abroad in cultural actions, including Playback Theatre, to explore the experience of living under occupation. Freedom Bus events occur in villages, towns, refugee camps and Bedouin communities throughout the occupied West Bank.

Endorsers of the Freedom Bus include Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Alice Walker, Angela Davis, Judith Butler, Maya Angelou, Noam Chomsky and Peter Brook.

On Tuesday June 3, 7:30pm, Ben Rivers, co-founder of the Freedom Bus, will speak about the use of Playback Theatre and cultural activism within the broader popular struggle movement. The presentation, including video clips, will take place at Deyo Hall, 6 Broadhead Avenue, New Paltz, NY (next to Rail Trail—not on campus!).

Following Ben’s talk, Hudson River Playback Theatre performers will reflect audience responses.

Palestine Stories is cosponsored by Middle East Crisis Response.

Admission is free. Donations to support the Freedom Bus will be accepted.
