“Paradises of the Earth” (2017), directed by Nadir Bouhmoch and produced by Hamza Hamouchene, documents the solidarity caravan of an international group of activists to four different locations of Southern Tunisia. These areas were at the heart of the 2011 Uprising and, after the spotlights went off, are still seeing tenacious struggles against intersecting environmental and class injustices. This documentary provides a great starting point to understand and debate these issues from a radical and internationalist perspective. For more information see http://www.paradisesoftheearth.com/.
After the screening, there will be a debate on contemporary struggles for justice in the Maghreb with Lorenzo Feltrin, Joe Hayns and Lydia Medland. Lorenzo is a PhD student at the University of Warwick and is working on labour mobilisations in Morocco and Tunisia. Joe is a labour journalist and has been reporting on the cycle of social protests, known as Hirak Eshabi, taking place in the Moroccan Rif this year. Lydia is a PhD student at the University of Bristol and is researching the conditions and the struggles of the workers employed in the Moroccan agribusiness.
