The latest wave of repression in the occupied Palestinian territories once more underscores the unsustainability of the Israeli occupation. Yet this occupation is also the longest in modern times. In just a year’s time, in 2017, the occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza will have lasted 50 years. To commemorate this symbolic year and to give momentum to the public challenge of occupation and the demand for the implementation of the legal rights of the Palestinian people, AEI and Palestine Link wish to make an appeal to artists worldwide to prepare a performance or artistic product about the theme of “occupation”.
Christmas comes back this year under hard circumstances worldwide. Here in Palestine we witness on daily base the deaths of young people, executions, sieges, checkpoints and walls. On the one hand, there is the ongoing occupation and lack of freedom; on the other we face ongoing fear and lack of security. Palestine remains a vast prison and death arena for everyone, including women and children.
