Film screening: "The Garbage Cage"
and discussion with Hebron-area researcher Ahmad Jaradat
Trapped by Israel's Separation Wall, many people from the Hebron area are forced to make a living by digging for metal in the Yatta garbage dump. The Garbage Cage describes the life of these people, many of whom are children, who in spite of their so-called low position hold tight to their dreams and hopes, their childhood dreams and hopes, their childhood games and small fights, their laughter and pain, their struggle. Their humanity.
Following the film, we will discuss the socio-political and economic situation of the Yatta area with Ahmad Jaradat, Hebron-based senior researcher and fieldworker with the AIC.
