Iman Aoun, Artistic Director of ASHTAR THEATRE, send this message: "I was trying to think strait since the trauma of bombarding the theatre took place on Thursday August 9, and was not able to think fast of an action plan. Now I’m ready to ask our dear international friends to act:
1) Please write to your government representatives, that it is time to take measurements and condemn Israel for its atrocities against the people in Gaza.
2) Dedicate public performances to the sake of the theatre movement in Gaza, this will raise the awareness of your public,about what has and is happening.
3) Put a bucket at the entrance of your performancesfor the people to donate towards renting a new space for ASHTAR Theatre Group in Gaza to continue their performances.
4) Support the crowd funding of rebuilding the theatre once it kicks off. Unfortunately though, the law of the occupation, demands that we obtain a permission from the Israeli military to allow us rebuild the bombarded theatre. So until we get that permission if we ever get it we cannot rebuild the theatre.
Solidarity makes us more humane
