"They built a wall to try to keep terrorists out
And it becomes symbolic what terrorism’s about" (h. Salam)
Spent the day taking with various communities impacted by the apartheid wall. They explained it as 'Ethnic Cleansing' by making their lives severely difficult and many communities have becomes ghost towns. The Beduin communities have collective decided to resist relocation. It demonstrates indigenous peoples deep connection to their lands are not easily uprooted.
Beduin elders remind us this struggle is not isolated but rather part of the continued colonization.
