Members of The Freedom Theatre (Palestine) prohibited from travelling abroad

Share

In the past two years, several members of The Freedom Theatre (a theatre and cultural centre in Jenin Refugee Camp, occupied Palestine) have been unable to travel due to either denied visas or denied entry/exit by border officials.

 

The Freedom Theatre senior staff member Mustafa Sheta was recently denied exit by Israeli border authorities to attend a visa appointment at the US Embassy in Amman. Third-year acting student Osama Al Azzeh was denied entry by Jordanian border authorities to participate in community theatre performances in refugee camps. In the past two years, several members of The Freedom Theatre have been unable to travel due to either denied visas or denied entry/exit by border officials. The Freedom Theatre is deeply concerned about these latest examples of isolation of Palestinian cultural associations.
