Sorry for the late notice on this one but a big web based panel talk is coming up this afternoon to launch the fundraising drive to publish Tom Hurndall's journals when he was in Palestine and the wider Middle East.
The eight week campaign will launch at 4pm with a panel discussion between;
• Tom’s parents Anthony and Jocelyn Hurndall
• John Sweeney – BBC Panorama journalist who made 2003 documentary ‘When Killing is Easy’ and Independent article Silenced Witnesses
• Rowan Joffe and Simon Block – Director and Screenwriter of Channel 4 BAFTA-nominated film documentary The Shooting of Thomas Hurndall
• Mohammed Qeshta – who was with Tom when we was shot and worked for the International Solidarity Movement
It will be an hour long panel discussion of people who know Tom’s story and will be filmed and streamed live online to launch the fundraising campaign. The aim of this talk will be to engage the audience with Tom’s work and the concept of the book, whilst encouraging people to donate
money towards it.
