South African and Israeli Systems Compared in Second Saturday Documentary

Roadmap-To-Apartheid_ARTThe parallels between South Africa’s former practice of separating citizens by race and Israeli apartheid are drawn in “Roadmap to Apartheid,” a documentary that will be screened at 1:30 pm, May 13, at Niles Discovery Church, 36600 Niles Blvd., Fremont, at Nursery Ave. The Second Saturday Documentary Series is free and open to the public.

The late Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected black African president of South Africa and tireless opponent of apartheid said, “We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians.”

Film-makers Ana Nogueira of South Africa and Eron Davidson, a Jewish American-Israeli, released their film in 2012 to acclaim and criticism. A wide-ranging discussion concerning the politics of race, religion, and security will follow the screening.

The Second Saturday Documentary Series is co-sponsored by Niles Discovery Church and the San Jose Peace & Justice Center. For more information, call 510 797-0895 or visit http://bit.ly/nilesssds.
