The campaign, launched on the 1st of March, includes a series of digital and physical activities that aim at shedding light on different aspects of the livelihoods of Palestinians residing in East Jerusalem, including their basic human rights that are being violated by the Occupying Power (OP).

“The campaign targets the knowledge and awareness-raising on Jerusalem, it aims to shed light on the problems Jerusalemites have to go through on daily basis. The campaign also targets the international community because it’s more than just an occupation, its controls every aspect of our lives, we need the responsible international community to take its role”, Yusra Jamous program manager.
It’s important to have an on-hand discussion between the youth and state representatives since the youth are the future of Jerusalem, there’s so much work to do and share with, she added.
