Raising Sand: The Politics of Water and medical care in Israel and Palestine, 8 August 2009
In the Palestinian villages of Qarawat Bani Zayid, Kufr âAyn, Beit Rima, Deir Ghasane, and Nabi Salah the taps have been running dry â no water for drinking, for washing, for livestock or agriculture. Many Palestinians in this area have not had water from their taps since March 15.
Raising Sand talks with Susan Kopelman of Life Source, a Palestinian-led collective that works specifically on the issues associated with water in Israel and Palestine, and Israeli Ron Yaron of Physicians for Human Rights about the politics surrounding the medical situation facing Palestinians living in the Jordan Valley.
