Creating people's geographies
From Anis Hamadeh, ‘Likud Party Discovers Brazilian Artist Latuff‘
From an article in the Independent:
The Palestinian West Bank is being chopped up by Israeli checkpoints and barriers. A high wall seals off Jerusalem from the West Bank. There are 550 permanent roadblocks and 125 makeshift roadblocks. The ‘two state solution’ … can no longer be implemented. Even with the right passes, entering Jerusalem from the West Bank is a laborious process of queuing with the possibility in the Palestinian case that they may well be turned away. Every Palestinian has stories of men who were not allowed to enter Jerusalem to take their wife to hospital. “Above all there is a sense of hopelessness,” said Mustafa, a Palestinian shopkeeper.
