We Teach Life Sir by Rafeef Ziadah

Video

 

This video was shown to us during our training just after arriving in Palestine. In the poem Rafeef Ziadah, a Palestinian poet from Gaza, expresses her frustration over her encounters with Western media whose portrayal of the Palestinian people is ingrained with pro-Israeli bias and therefore perceives them as terrorists, thereby dehumanising them.
