Free film screening – The Lab

Tuesday October 14
5:00pm - 7:30pm
Macquarie Room
NSW Parliament, Macquarie St Sydney

An investigative documentary into the Israeli arms industry The Lab looks at the Israeli arms industry and the nexus between this industry and the ongoing military occupation of Palestine.

Yotam Feldman, director of The Lab and a former journalist with Israel’s Haaretz newspaper, says Israel has turned the occupied territories into a laboratory for refining, testing and showcasing its weapons systems. Since 9/11, the Israeli arms industries have grown significantly. Large Israeli companies develop and test the weapons, which are then sold worldwide by private Israeli arms dealers, who work with networks of Israeli politicians and army commanders. Israeli theoreticians and academics explain how to defeat civil and para-military resistance and Israeli military trainers work internationally with militias and police.

The film reveals that the Israeli military occupation of Gaza and the West Bank has been transformed from a burden to a marketable, highly profitable, national asset. Israeli sales of weapons and military systems hit a record high last year of $7.5bn, up from $5.8bn the previous year. A decade ago, Israeli exports were worth less than $2bn. Israel is one of the worlds’ largest arms exporters – a significant achievement for a country smaller than New York.

Presented by the Coalition for Justice and Peace in Palestine (CJPP) and hosted by the NSW Parliamentary Friends of Palestine.
