Marjorie Wright is an American filmmaker of conscience concerned with human rights. In 2008 wrote and Co-directed with Lucy Martens, “Voices From Inside, Israelis Speak,” a film that weaves historic footage with modern-day views of Palestine: its partition walls, “apartheid roads,” demolished homes and the Israeli soldiers sent to “protect” Israel, says, The San Francisco Reporter.

In 2011 Wright was part of a group of 267  artists and supporters of the arts—including dozens of prominent playwrights, actors, directors, filmmakers, producers and theater professors from the U.S., New Zealand, Israel, England and other countries—have signed a public letter to Israeli authorities decrying the Israeli military’s attacks on The Freedom Theatre in Jenin, a northern city in the West Bank, Palestine, which was founded by Juliano Mer-Khamis, who was assassinated on  4 April 2011 in  Jenin.

Voices From Inside, Israelis Speak is a documentary film tracing an Israeli evolution of consciousness from early Zionism, a holocaust perspective, and seeds of militaristic nationalism to a positive modern perspective of conscience, honesty, and reconciliation: the real path to lasting peace.
The 16 peace activists interviewed for the film say citizens of Israel need to wake up to the country’s reality, particularly parents who send their sons and daughters to the army in which, “blinded by power,” they commit unspeakable acts.

Those Jews who speak out against human-rights abuses in Israel and Palestine increasingly face their own “ominous loss of rights,” Wright says. “There have been arrests, confiscation of computers, threats of huge fines and imprisonment.” Recent interviews with American Jewish academics, Wright says, point to the rise of what they call “fascist elements inside Israeli society and the erosion of rights even for Jewish citizens.”

The film was awarded  Arpa’s Armin T. Wegner in 2009, which each year is awards a motion picture that contributes to the fight for social conscience and human rights, “Voices from Inside: Israelis Speak.” “This feature length documentary film is based on the stories of 16 Jewish Israeli voices of conscience, each representing a different facet of the peace movement inside Israel,” says Zaven Khachaturian, Arpa Film Festival Curator who invited the film to the festival.

On 2013, Wright wrote Voices Across the Divide, “Millions of dollars are spent on campus groups and in the media, aggressively promoting an Israel-right-or-wrong political stand and actively attacking students, professors, writers, and performers who exhibit sympathy or interest in “the other side.” This muzzling of the dialogue is a major threat to our fundamental principles of free speech and tolerance and thus to our basic democratic values. It is also deeply corruptive to our foreign policy and our ability to understand how others see us. Voices Across the Divide follows Alice Rothchild’s personal journey as she begins to understand the Palestinian narrative, while exploring the Palestinian experience of loss, occupation, statelessness, and immigration to the US, exploring voices for a just peace in the region.” Written by Alice Rothchild

Mick Blake #CelebritiesForPalestine from Ireland

Mick Blake band
Mick Blake social protest music singer and composer supports Palestine, as musician do with their music, his heartfelt song “Another Child Another War” written for Gaza children, innocent victims of Israel ‘war’ of aggression.
Show your support for #CelebritiesForPalestine that raise their voices and use their celebrity status to raise their voice for Palestine.

Mick Blakes writes on his youtube video Another Child Another World “My humble contribution to raising awareness of the plight of the surviving children of Gaza.

The idea for this song came to me on the beach at Rosses Point, Sligo, a few weeks ago, Blake said, at the moment that Photographer Brian Farrell,  had the wonderful idea of photographing 400 children dressed in red to show the extent of the young casualties in the conflict.

The rest fell into place when I read a transcript (translated from Hebrew) of an interview from an Israeli radio station.” he said.
Alternative singers and composer now days have the ability to brake out of the stream entertainment culture with more control over their careers than traditional singers that were exposed to the control of the record industry, now the the social media tools in place, authors, singers, and other artists have the ability to survive in the entertainment industry without compromise their integrity as a human beings.

Like Mick Blake that sings for the survivors children of Gaza, other singers have come out in their support for Palestine without fearing the repercussions of the Jews Lobby that it is entrenched in the music industry around the world, lobby that in the past was like yoke on the neck for new musicians, still in US Hollywood is controlled by the Jews Lobby, and any artist that comes out in their support of Palestine is blacklisted, we seen it recently with Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem that faced Hollywood fury over their letter against Israel Genocide in Gaza.

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem face ‘fury’ of Hollywood following ‘genocide’ letter condemning Israel” wrote the independent in their August 10 online publication, heading like these denouncing the actors that broke out of the mold of “Israel support no matter what’ inundated the stream media headlines for days but thanks to their fans supports base that Penelope, Bardem and hundreds of others artist are coming out of the shell without fear
Social Media is showing again to the controllers of lives that the people with their power, controls the success of the artist and not the old- school-grip of dirty tactics which are used to menace to destroy careers for speaking their minds.

The importance of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions in the current Palestinian-Israel conflict will be the tipping point in the history of Palestine occupation. Conflict as the media wants to called it, is none other but an going military occupation and a continuous annexation of Palestinian’s lands.
In recent years more and more #CelebritiesForPalestine are speaking up their disgust, against Israel daily practices of murder than amount to #Genocide, and as some want to call it a #PalestinianHolocaust. Mick Blake, the social songwriter and singer subliminally says it in its recent composition to the survivors children of Gaza, in it is song “Another  Child Another War” comparing a murdered Jew girl name Anne Frank that die in a concentration camp in 1945,  to Eman Ammar, a Palestinian girl killed by an Israel Strike.
The resemblance on the story of their death, and even the resemblance of their faces is striking.
Blake subliminally makes the connection of the crimes of the Nazis to the crimes of the Israelis in the same context of a holocaust.
Welcome to the new era of social media where we the people are the opinion makers.
