Creating people's geographies
“At the core, occupied and abused people will resist their occupation and subjugation. Who among those who support Israel’s right to use disproportionate force would trade places with a Palestinian living in Gaza or welcome the opportunity to live in one of the refugee camps in Lebanon?
