After seven decades of turmoil and military occupation in the so-called “Holy Land,” both Palestinians and Israelis feel victimised; however, their national narratives are distinctly characterised.
The former champion resistance and ‘Sumud’ (steadfastness) while the latter underscore a history of ethnic and religious persecution and geopolitical weakness as the “only democracy in the Middle East.”
Meanwhile, the situation is labelled ‘intractable’ and misinformation abounds. But what is actually going on on the ground? What do the everyday impacts of occupation look like from a human rights perspective?
Join for an evening of storytelling about the events, people and places encountered across three months of protective presence in high-risk areas of the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
