At-Tuwani: Where Walking to School is An Act of Resistance

Tuwani: Ancient Palestinian Village Struggles to Survive

Here is another report from the Christian Peacemaker Team, who look out after the children in the area of the At-Tuwani village in the southern Hebron hills  as they try to make their way to school.   Once again, the Israeli military fails to patrol the children as they are required to do to protect them from attacks by adult settlers.  And once again, the children and their parents manage to overcome the dangers and make it through to the precious school day. 

 As the report makes clear, the village children are learning about dignity and resistance.  Imagine what the settler children are learning.
