Opening of the photo exhibit "Jerusalem Dispossessed" Mudrakers Cafe 2801 Telegraph Ave. with student speakers who have lived and worked in Jerusalem. Additional photos will be shown at Fertile Grounds Cafe, 1796 Shattuck Ave.
"Jerusalem Dispossessed" is a collection of photographs put together by the photo collective ActiveStills and the Israeli Committee Against Home Demolition (ICAHD). The photos capture the tragedy and injustices that are currently being played out in the city of Jerusalem against the Palestinian residents in the form of home demolitions, discriminatory municipal policy and resource allocation, and the continued construction of the Separation Wall.
