Resisting Occupation Through Building Up

Night ride in Al Aqaba
A Palestinian child looks on as his friends enjoy an amusement park ride in the village of Al Aqaba in the West Bank of Palestine.

This photo was taken in 2016, as the village of Al Aqaba continues to battle for its very existence – not through force of arms but through defying the Israeli demolition order by building up its services to its community members. This ride is part of a (then-new) park that instantly became the delight of the entire region.
