The campers had a very relaxing today in Ramallah lounging by the pool at the restaurant and hangout Snowbar. We hung out, played cards, and swam, soaking in the sun. Overall, a much needed respite from the bustle of usual camp.
Later that evening, back at the school, we watched the critically acclaimed documentary The Wanted 18 about the persistence of the Beit Sahour community during the first Intifada. With 18 cows, the townspeople were able to effectively boycott buying dairy products from Israel - even when the cows were ordered to be killed. We were lucky enough to bring the director of the film in for a talkback after the screening. The campers asked thoughtful questions and engaged critically with the movie and the way in which it told the story of resistance and commitment.
