The Dignity of Loss - the Palestinian village of Bil'in.
The Dignity of Loss, Bil’in, West Bank, May 2009.
Bil’in is a Palestinian village that is struggling
to exist. It is fighting to safeguard its land, its olive trees, its resources…
its liberty. By annexing close to 60% of Bil’in’s land for Israeli settlements
and the construction of the illegal separation Wall, the state of Israel is
strangling the village. Despite the overwhelming force of the Israeli army,
arbitary arrests and detentions, the killing of non-violent protestors, the
residents of Bi’lin continue to exercise their right to protest non-violently
against the theft of their land and the construction of the illegal Wall.
