Bilin, My Love: Israelis against the occupation
Last night an Israeli film director named Shai Carmeli-Pollak, along with residents of Bilin village, visited the Alternative Information Center in Beit Sahour for a screening of his film 'Bilin Habibti'. This non-fictional film documents the struggle of one community in Palestine and their non-violent resistance to the Israeli Occupation. This community reflects thousands of others facing the same effects of state terrorism.
Shai served his two years in the Israeli army without any level of political awareness almost 20 years ago. He is now an anarchist and is devoted to the rescue of Bilin village, a Palestinian farming community whose very existence is being threatened by the illegal construction of Israeli settlements and the apartheid Wall. Since 2005 weekly demonstrations have been held in the village, which has already lost over 50% of its agricultural land to the construction of the Wall.
