video of solidarity visit and tree planting Saturday, March 12, in Al Arakib

One sign in Hebrew reads ‘There are no unrecognized villages,’ a comment on Israel’s policy of declaring Bedouin villages (mostly in the Negev, but not only) ‘unrecognized,’ meaning that the government does not recognize their existence, and therefore, they are not allowed to have any infrastructure as schools, health clinics, water systems, electricity, roads, etc etc etc. For more information on unrecognized villages: The Association of Forty

There are NO Jewish ‘unrecognized villages’

The head of the village says in his brief speech that he hopes that all those who participated in the planting of the trees on Saturday will eat together the fruit of those trees: their olives.
