Jeremy Hardy vs the Israel Army

We at Open Bethlehem are immensely sad at the passing of Jeremy Hardy. Jeremy was not only a good friend to Palestinians and our bid for freedom, but to Open Bethlehem in particular. He was one of the very first to receive a Bethlehem passport, issued in honour of his exceptional – and unique - contribution.

We offer all of our love and sympathy to his family, especially our friend and Jeremy’s wife, Katie Barlow, and Jeremy’s daughter, Elisabeth.

For the moment, the best tribute we can offer is the film that Jeremy made with Open Bethlehem director, Leila Sansour.

Jeremy Hardy, comedian, activist, born 17 July 1961; died 1 February 2019
