In 2012 they breached the Palestinian call for a cultural boycott of Israel and performed in Israel.

Inminds are protesting the hosting of the film festival, not because it’s Jewish, but because its sponsored by the apartheid state of Israel.In 2003 when Nelson Mandela visited Camden he unveiled a plaque outside 13 Lyme Street, the former home of the eminent anti-apartheid activists Joe Slovo and Ruth First whose home was the hub of the anti-apartheid movement before Ruth First was murdered by the apartheid regime by a parcel bomb, Camden's MP announced "this is a great day for Camden where the British anti-apartheid movement was founded". A few streets away in what in now called Mandela Street was the headquarters of the Anti-Apartheid Movement. As Camden residents, we are proud of our borough’s history in fighting apartheid and racism so we are shocked that our local cinema is collaborating with an apartheid regime by hosting a film festival sponsored by the Israeli Embassy.In the same way as it was ethically unacceptable to host a film festival paid for the South African regime during apartheid South Africa so today its not acceptable to host apartheid Israel.Film festivals should not be used in staging a propaganda campaign on behalf of an apartheid regime. Odeon Swiss Cottage is wittingly or unwittingly, been complicit in a million-dollar ‘Brand Israel’ PR campaign to change negative perceptions of the state of Israel, to take the focus off Israel’s treatment of Palestinians and refocus it on culture. As former deputy director general of the Israeli foreign ministry, Nissim Ben-Sheetrit, explained upon launching the Brand Israel campaign in 2005: “We are seeing culture as a hasbara [propaganda] tool of the first rank, and I do not differentiate between hasbara and culture.”Inminds urge Swiss Cottage Odeon to make a commitment to abide by the Palestinian call for a cultural boycott of Israel. They welcome Jewish filmmaking but reject the promotion of Israel in the UK while Palestinians continue to live under siege, discrimination and exclusion. ]]> Inminds Mon, 04 Nov 2013 12:23:19 GMT rotests across the world for Palestinian children tortured and caged in Israel MWFpress- Human rights group Inminds held an international protest in solidarity with 5 Palestinian kids arrested by Israel.These boys has been tortured and kept in cages for a long time and global protests are happening in different countries, demanding their freedom.These protests are held so far in Paris, Perpignan, London, Corodba, Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Temuco, Valdivia and Canada.
