Painting on the Wall of the Faidat family
Friday, 18.1.13, 13:00

The story of the Faidat* family represents the high price that the people of Anta, North East Jerusalem, have to pay:

The lands that family live on have been taken, the people live in poor conditions with no decent access to infrastructure.
The Jerusalem El Kuds group of Combatants for Peace have been working with the family for the past two years.

This coming Friday, the 18th of January 2013 we will hold another joint activity in which adults and children will paint on the walls of the tunnel that the kids walk through daily to school.

A month ago we held a day in which we placed a water pipe which is now supplying water in a proper way for the first time in 40 years. You can see pictures in the
following link. (

We will meet at 13.00, at the Dominos Pizza located on 1 Ha-etzel st. French Hill

* Background: The faidat family, bearing 70 members, is a precise example of the ongoing struggle and the ugly reality of the occupation. Anatot, an Israeli army base that was built in the 1970`s took big parts of the family`s lands. The fences of the base reach up to several meters from the family`s frond door, and block complety the area from its Eastern side.
In the western portion of the family`s land, a high wall was erected by the Israeli Infrastructure Deparment. In the need of keeping the land the family started growing agricultural crops on the land that was left. You can learn some more about the struggle the family deals with through the following film put together by the Jerusalem El Kuds group.
