What better image can there be of cultural resistance to occupation than dancing under the separation wall. In spite of the occupation, destruction of civil life and countless barriers to cultural engagement, Palestine, Palestinians and their culture does not go away, or become invisible.
In solidarity with the right to roam walk from Land’s End to John O’Groats, and in Hebron, children in the north of the Gaza Strip participated in a walk organised by Al Asria children centre in Jabalia in walk on June 4th
Our comrade and ex-Sheffield resident, Arwa, took 49 children from the hill of Tel Rumeida down into the Old City to celebrate Caroline Poland’s achievement of her Right to Roam walk
Caroline’s walk has been undertaken to show solidarity with those who live under the most repressive situations within Palestine, especially in the West bank, Jerusalem and Gaza.
Arwa, to achieve this short walk into Shuhada Street, had to cross two of the most notorious checkpoints where nine people have been killed in the last six months. The excitement of doing this simple walk shows in the children’s faces. Normally they have to stay inside because of the volatile situation.
