PALESTINIAN FAIR TRADE GIFTS

 Zeitgeist has partnered with CANAAN FAIR TRADE to become the New Orleans vendor for their exclusive line of Palestinian Fair trade olives, olive oils, and gifts. Based in Jenin, Palestine, Canaan Fair Trade sells olive oil and other delicacies produced by over 1,700 small farmers organized in informal cooperatives and represented by the Palestinian Fair Trade association (PFTA). Canaan Fair Trade uses the fair trade concept to empower marginalized Palestinian rural communities caught in conflict so they can sustain their livelihoods and culture.$16 – Nabali Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil – 500 ml bottles

OUR ALTERNATIVE DVD STORE

Since Katrina it has become virtually impossible to find anywhere to purchase alternative DVDs without having to go to the burbs or on-line.

So, Zeitgeist has expanded to include a new alternative DVD & Book Store. We just got in a massive supply of hard to find titles from FIRST RUN FEATURES and AET/MIDDLE EAST BOOKS. We have more titles coming in from ZEITGEIST FILMS, MICROCINEMA DVD and THE OTHER CINEMA.

In keeping with our mission statement – “Something For and Against Everyone!” these DVDs include a wide assortment of political documentaries and features, African, Asian, Tibetan, Middle Eastern features and docs and queer cinema

So come and check it out. All purchases help benefit Zeitgeist’s on-going programming. 22 years and still going stronger than ever!
