Jailed in Gaza: Paul Martin tells
Earlier this year, Paul Martin, a British film-maker
and journalist, was arrested by Hamas. He spent a month in jail
in solitary confinement.
Martin was detained on February 14 in a court in Gaza where he had intended to
testify on behalf of Mohammed Abu Muailik, accused of working with Israel. Martin
had been making a film about Abu Muailik.
While the UK government and international organisations worked hard for his release,
a news blackout was imposed.
Don’t miss what promises to be a fascinating event: Paul Martin will talk
to us about his ordeal - what it was like to be in a Hamas jail, how he was treated,
and what inner resources kept him going.
