VIDEO: “People not Places” by Invincible 15Aug09 August 16, 2009

Featuring Abeer, Suhell Nafar (DAM), and Shadia Mansour, People Not Places takes the listener on an Israeli “birthright” tour where the buried Palestinian significance of each location comes to light. Along the route the video exposes the process of historic and continued colonization as being even deeper than land seizure and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians, but one that is invested in erasing the indigenous language, culture, and memory. Intertwined between verses are interviews from various perspectives exposing the myth of a “Jewish birthright” to a land to which Palestinians are denied the Right of Return. These insightful voices break down the importance of Palestinian Right of Return, how it can be actualized, and how it connects to the resistance of displaced communities from Iraq to New Orleans.
