From Al-Araqib to Susiya: Forced Displacement of Palestinians on Both Sides of the Green Line
by Adalah

On Nakba Day, 15 May 2013, Palestinians will mark the passing of 65 years since the massive forced expulsion of Palestinians from their national homeland.  The Nakba commemorations demand reflection not only on the "catastrophe" of the loss of life, land, and property in 1948, but also on Israeli policies that are still dispossessing Palestinians of their land today, 65 years later.

Two Palestinian villages, Al-Araqib and Susiya -- one in Israel, one in the West Bank -- share a single story of struggle against forced displacement.  The film below documents a journey between the two villages and two communities, whose very existence on their land is under threat today.  It also demonstrates how, in the face of a single Israeli policy to forcibly displace Palestinians on both sides of the Green Line, the people are drawing on deep reserves of courage and steadfastness to remain on their land.


Adalah ("Justice" in Arabic) is an independent human rights organization and legal center.  Established in November 1996, it works to promote and defend the rights of Palestinian Arab citizens of Israel as well as Palestinians living in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT).  For more information, "From Al-Araqib to Susiya: Forced Displacement of Palestinians on Both Sides of the Green Line" (Factsheet), bit.ly/2V-1S-Factsheet; and "From Al-Araqib to Susiya: Forced Displacement of Palestinians on Both Sides of the Green Line" (Position Paper), bit.ly/2V-1S-PosPaper.
