Last week, Palestinian Media Watch reported that the Palestinian mission in Britain was planning to screen a film about terrorist Marwan Barghouti at the Mayfair Hotel in London. Following PMW’s exposure, the hotel cancelled the event.
Explaining that the Mayfair Hotel “renegaded on its agreement” due to “pressure by Zionist groups,” the PA embassy has announced it has changed the venue to a different location: The Copthorne Tara Hotel in London.

Asked by PMW, the Copthorne Tara Hotel in London confirmed that the event is indeed taking place today.
