Israeli Apartheid Week pt 3: “I don’t care what people think”

One of the most inhumane parts of the occupation is the Israeli restrictions on Palestinian movement in their own country.

It’s also worth noting that, at these checkpoints, many suffering Palestinians – who need medial attention – are denied access to the areas they need to get to for hospital care. Many Palestinian mothers are in labour at such checkpoints, and many give birth there – only to find their babies dying there.
