Turning Point “Don’t wait for an opportunity in bed. Go volunteer, learn, initiate, take pictures, write or even gather your social group & achieve together.” Saed Karzoun, a Palestinian artist exhibiting at the Centre Culturel Français in Ramallah. Having seen for myself the wall in Bethlehem and the humiliation at the check-points; having spoken with people in the Aida Refugee Camp, learnt about the apartheid on Shuhada Street, and witnessed the Zionist Tour, I found it impossible to be here and not try to do something. The injustice of the occupation of the West Bank is overwhelming. Following a chance encounter in Jerusalem, I organised to meet the media coordinator of the International Solidarity Movement in Ramallah to find out how I could get involved. It’s time to stop looking out of the window, and stand on the street.
