My latest artwork is called: “Steadfast Despite The Pain”
In the commemoration of Al-Nakba “the Catastrophe” observed on 15 May annually, the Nakba marks the 1948 forced expulsion of nearly 800,000 Palestinians from their homes in historical Palestine.
My grandfather and my grandmother were one of those people fleeing to Jordan with my father aged one year old at that time along with his siblings.
Seventy-three years ago, and until today Israel is continuing to seizure our Holy Palestinian lands and still committing forced evictions as in the recent news of Sheikh al-Jarrah and Silwan neighbourhoods in Jerusalem.
Despite the decades of Palestinians suffering, we still continue to affirm our right to return to our homes and villages in historical Palestine and have raised our children to never forget their right to return too.
