STORY

In the newspaper ‘Alquds’ [Jerusalem] there is a section called ‘Alquds twenty years ago’, a picture of the front page of this newspaper two decades before. Reading this news, it seems today is as it was twenty years ago. The same topics are being discussed: peace talks, prisoners, Jerusalem and refugees. Clearly there is a need for change.

Ahmad Nassar: “We are tired of the same news we receive every day; settlements, the Apartheid Wall, the right to return, the prisoners. Final solutions and agreements that have never been implemented become news that like waves make us drown. Personally, I have not been following the news nor reading the newspapers for a while now. What I’m doing might be more useful. I make bowls out of them”.
