Aida refugee camp lives in the shadow of the Israeli separation wall. The camp is over crowded, with no space for children to play. Young people vent their frustration by throwing stones at Israeli watchtowers and into the neighbouring army camp.
Israeli soldiers respond with tear gas and sound bombs, arresting children and firing rubber bullets and live ammunition.
“Young people in Aida Camp believe it is normal to throw stones, to inhale tear gas, to hide from soldiers but this is not normal. We have to let them see what normal life is and to know what they should aspire to.” Abdelfattah Abusrour, Director of Alrowwad Centre for Culture & Arts.
Amos partner, Alrowwad teaches ‘beautiful resistance’ inspiring young people to channel their activism into creative non-violence using music, dance, drama, film and photography.
