BDS talk 2015 in Gasteig, with Christopher Ben Kushka

Almost two years after the event of the ‘Jüdisch-Palästinensische Dialoggruppe‘ ending in trouble the group is allowed to return to the munipicial center. According to reports of the Süddeutsche Zeitung, the city checked possibilities to cancel the event but saw no option as the group only rented the rooms. 24mmjournalism’s photographer Michi was again on site to report on the event and counter-protest.

Entry Denied after Critical Report 2015

At the entrance of the Black-box 24mmjournalism was denied entry. One of the organizers greated with: “Look who is there, our thief friend” – referring to an absurde accusation made in 2015 to have stolen all informaton material. Trying to clear tthis with the organizers led to no goal. They advised to buy a ticket, but told 24mmjournalism right away, that taking photos inside would not be allowed. So even though we wanted to report about the sucseeding event to 2015 – and also changes and other approaches – we were denied. This is almost hillarious as Ben Kushka the speaker from the last talk eventhough we reported quite critical on his talk, stole a photo published on this blog (including the watermark) to mobilize for another talk on BDS by him.
