Events hosted or supported by SSCN

Film Screening: April 19th, 2024 


Join us at 5:30pm on April 19th at the Mahone Bay Centre in welcoming activist and inspiration Rana Zaman to the South Shore. If you’ve been to an @ac_palestiniansociety rally in Halifax we’re sure you heard her open the events with her mighty call, “Welcome Humanity!”. We are honoured to host Rana and can’t wait to learn more about her experiences in doing advocacy work in Nova Scotia, and what we can all do locally to dispel harmful myths and counter the spread of disinformation as we support calls for a Free Palestine.

This will also be the another chance to sign the petition we’re sending to Premier Houston!

As always, children are welcome – we hope to have some colouring pages & supplies available.
