Under Repression, Creativity Still grows.

      Some moving and inspirational works of art by Palestinians, created from Israeli instruments of oppression.

    Although Palestinians have lived under Israeli occupation and apartheid for over six decades, Western narratives usually paint them as hateful and violent, as if they were born with hatred rather than shaped by a life of displacement, discrimination, military rule, poverty and oppression.
    And to deepen the injustice of these narratives, despite being born into these harsh circumstances, the vast majority of Palestinians have still adopted nonviolent strategies of resistance in their continuing struggle for equal rights and justice. Today this nonviolent resistance movement includes: weekly protests against Israel's separation wall, mass mobilisations against Israeli policies of displacement, hunger strikes against Israel's inhumane treatment of prisoners and staging protest camps against Israel's appropriation of land and illegal settlements.
