Palestine: Art as Resistance

Abdelfattah Abusrour, director of Al-Rowwad Culture and Theatre Center in the Aida Refugee Camp in Bethlehem, crossposts an article he has written about the use of art as a means of resistance: “I was born Palestinian and I don’t want to do anything to change this. I was born in a refugee camp, in my own country, and there is nothing I can do about it. I was born under occupation, and I will do everything possible or impossible to change this.”
