We entered Al Far'a refugee camp today to be greeted once again by numerous amounts of children mesmerized by our presence. Following Mohammed down the narrow alleyways and the crowded streets was once more a reminder of the conditions these people were forced to live in after seeking refuge in their own country. We were there to meet Sami who had served over five years in prison for being too active in his fight against the occupation. He had been arrested at 18 from the very house we were sat in as he now talked of his wife and new born child.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Defying the traditional Palestinian method of denying expressions of the occupation, Wasfi Tayeh, the leader of a local theatre group in al-Far'a refugee camp in the northern West Bank, is preparing a new show. The show, in which a group of young men are going to perform inside rooms that used to be dungeons in an old Israeli prison, will be the first of its kind.
