Justice for Palestine film screening: Roadmap to Apartheid

Roadmap to Apartheid

Roadmap to Apartheid is a documentary about the parallels between the rise and implementation of the Apartheid system in South Africa and the systematic segregation and oppression of Palestinian people by Israel. Interviews with South Africans, Israelis, and Palestinians illustrate the similarities and the differences yet point to the hope suggested by the dawn of justice in South Africa.

One response to “Justice for Palestine film screening: Roadmap to Apartheid

  1. Brief review and how to obtain film

    This film gives a good introduction to apartheid in South Africa and Israel.

    The film reminded me of apartheid as it was practiced in Queensland when I was growing up:

    – Aboriginal people forced onto missions under the ‘Queensland Acts’ [Aborigines Preservation and Protection Act and the Torres Strait Islanders Act].

    – People rounded up and taken to Palm Island.

    – Children taken from their family as young as 11 to work as domestics.

    – Frustrating attempts by some people to gain exempt status under ‘the acts’ so that they could live in society as free people.

    This film should be shown in schools and public institutions.

    As ‘Roadmap to Apartheid’ is unlikely to be screened on mainstream media you can purchase it at http://roadmaptoapartheid.org/purchase/ and distribute to friends and others interested.
