Thank you for organising the event, really enjoyed it.
I went to the dabke and workshop and also the music on Sunday night... and

Well done to the whole team, salaam."

"The event was REALLY LOVELY & TOUCHING!!! It's nice to know that some people really care about Palestine and what's really going on and inshallah the whole world can also know"
"The Celebrate Palestine Festival 18th-20th March 2011 at the weekend was amazing in its diversity of events and also the unity and strength that it presented.
"it's like we have nothing but we have love and each other, talent and creativity and when we come together amazing things can happen, people power" (Sara Mahassen)
Nuff love and respect for all those involved, attending, contributing etc.. whether with a smile of happiness and solidarity, or hours of emailing and dedication. We need to build more things like this, for many things..
Finally...Yes, FREE PALESTINE.. but it is truly the Palestinian people and their strength who ARE the ones freeing us!! and for that I give thanks of the greatest meaning ♥ and loudly voice my belief in the equality of all our sisters and brothers across the world.
1 ♥, peace and respect to all."

an amazing event. The program was great - Lowkey, Al Zaytouna, Emilie (beautiful),
and the kids entertainment was great - Alia (storytelling - wish I had her
patience!), face-painting and lots more. Palestine is such a beautiful culture -
long live Palestine!
If you need anything, please let me know - always happy to help the wonderful
Palestinian people x"
Thanks for the lovely email. I totally loved the Festival – it had such a great mood to it! I was so impressed and struck by all the careful work that had gone into arranging and planning it, so that it brought a great spirit to the sensibility of the Festival: strong, inclusive, happy and principled. Amazing combination! This is one of the most difficult things to achieve, so please let everyone know... and all your friends involved, how hugely it was appreciated, and how remarkable it was."
