Open Garden - Kiln Shotts, Haytor - for The Children of Palestine

Open Garden - Kiln Shotts, Haytor - for The Children of Palestine

The Voyage of the Dove and the Dolphin started on the First of February 2003. Search 'eyes open gaza you tube' -

This 20 minute pastiche of broadcast interviews and of filmed evidence in Gaza shows clearly that a genocide was well advanced 21 years ago. Professor Ilan Pappe's book - 'The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine' tells that it started in 1948 and in the most horrific ways. But the world 'passed by on the other side.

Since the October 7th 'break out' and in the six months since, this genocide has reached its culmination - its apogee. That is the point in a planet's orbit when it furthest from its pivot.


Here is the poster - as displayed in the parish magazine of Ilsington, on gates, and in the local pubs. Sue and I hope for good weather so that people can enjoy the gardens and the woodland garden to their fullest -
