This summer camp is a great opportunity in order to get a global consciousness of the situation taking place in Palestine.
On the one hand, we have had a cultural exchange in the university environment. The experiene of teaching students from An-Najah University and dealing with the local volunteers has been really enriching, but also unexpected. Not only because of their high level of English, but also because of their deep knowledge about the occupation of Palestine and of the current situation.
On the other hand, we have had the chance of witnessing the horrors of the Israeli occupation with our own eyes. Without any doubt, this has been the most touching and shocking part of the camp. However, it has also reminded me that there’s still hope left. The strength and the resistance of the Palestinian people is unbelievable and admirable at the same time. We need to spread their message all over the world, because it’s not about an isolated case of a human rights’ violation. It’s about recovering common sense, love, and humanity in today’s upside-down world.
