A third generation of Palestinian children is living under occupation
31 December 2015
A third generation has been born into the occupation by now. A third generation of children who know only the reality of daily human rights violations. It’s hard to find hope when the occupation infiltrates every aspect of your life; it’s hard to grow up when you don’t feel safe even in your own home, with soldiers waking you in the dead of night; it’s hard to feel free when soldiers and police officers detain you on your way to school; it’s hard to breathe when you live, whether as child or adult, with your most basic rights as a person denied – the right to freedom and to dignity.
