(Quito, Ecuador) Many in Ecuador have also been moved to show solidarity with the Palestinians and their struggle, especially during this occasion of the international week against the wall.
In Quito, Ecuador´s capital, we organized several activities in solidarity such as a Cinema Forum in which we screened: films about Palestine, about refugees, the wall, the settlers, activism and more…For example: “Los niños de Chatilla”, “Aishen”, “The Wall”, and “Four questions for a Rabbi”. After the films there was a discussion in which people could share questions and perspectives about Palestine.
In addition two conferences were held, one at Ecuador’s public university, the “Universidad Central”, and the other at “San Francisco University”. The conferences hosted several experts on the Palestinian struggle who spoke about this issue from various perspectives (a historical perspective, a political perspective, etc).
As Stop the Wall, we took this opportunity to give them information about our organization (data, statistics, how to support STW, etc)
Ecuadoreans supported these activities, demonstrating widespread interesting in the topic.
