A request that you take action to help save Susya before the holiday begins this evening.

The military’s Civil Administration in the Occupied Territories is holding a hearing on Sunday that could determine the fate of Susya. As a counter to settler demands to demolish Palestinian Susya, the High Court granted us the opportunity to submit a building and zoning master plan that would allow the residents of Susya to build legally on their lands – a plan that should have existed long ago, but is almost inconceivable when the Israeli army is given the “White man’s burden” of planning for Palestinians.

To refresh your memory about Susya, you may wish to see the lastest chapters our Susya videoblog by award winning filmmaker Ibtisam Mara’ana and/or read more background.

Introducing the Children of Susya

In this video-post you will get to know the children of the Nawaja and Shuneran families, the two largest families in Susya.

Susya’s Elementary School

This video will introduce Susya's elementary school, which was established four years ago and has been under the constant threat of demolition

Not Connected to the Water Infrastructure

In this post we accompany the children of the Shuneran family on their daily chore of shepherding and sheep grazing.

Not Connected to the Education Infrastructure

In this episode of Disconnected we follow ten-year-old Hamudy on his way to a regional school in the village of A-Twany. A-Twany is bigger than Susya and can provide better education, but is a twenty-minute drive by bus and cannot meet the needs of all of Susya's children.  We then return to the harsh reality in Susya's local school and its sorry condition. But even under these circumstances we will learn an optimistic lesson in democracy and the ability to choose against the dictatorship that seeks to impose its rules.

Right-wing extremists violent through the eyes of the children in Palestinian Susya

The Palestinian village of Susya has a history of suffering under the often-violent friction with extremists from the nearby Jewish settlement of the same name. The security forces rarely deals with the violent and every now and then even support the extremists  Hamudy, a child from Palestinian Susya is telling us about how he’s experience these events.
