I am a British volunteer working on the Right to Education campaign at Birzeit University, and I am also an activist and writer with the International Solidarity Movement.

I have been given the opportunity to visit a country that has preoccupied all my thinking since being taken on a demonstration to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the 1948 Nakba as an ill-informed Fresher almost four years ago. As a slightly more politically concious 22 year old, I think that my experience here will most likely leave me with more questions than I have answers. Nevertheless, I intend to update this blog as regularly as possible – for my family and friends – but also for anyone who is interested in the occupation and would like to read about what life is really like in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
