Free Speech Radio News Special Christmas Eve Documentary:
Occupation and Resistance: Stories from Palestinian Homelands

As the Christian world prepares to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ tomorrow, residents of the holy land are still waiting for peace. Palestinians are facing increased pressure from the occupation, and a continuation of Israeli policies of land confiscation, restrictions on movement, home demolitions and the denial of access to health care, education, and community. In this half hour documentary produced by FSRN correspondent Sarah Olson, we zero in on agriculture issues related to the settlements and the Wall Israel is building in and around the West Bank. We look at Palestinian access to health care and the difficulties of living through daily checkpoints and home demolitions. We hear the stories of Palestinians living in the West Bank, their experience of occupation, and what they are doing to challenge their situation.
