 Occupied Palestinian Territories, 2013

'The Al-Quds University javelin team practices along side the separation wall. The West Bank institution often finds itself a focal point of violent clashes between Palestinian students and Israeli soldiers, with Israeli forces regularly storming university campuses across the occupied Palestinian territory. Students say a good day is not breathing tear gas, and experience excursions at minimum every few months.

The ability to find pleasure highlights humanity…and can be a form of resistance …the human spirit cannot just live on misery and drama. These “amazon warriors” stopped me in my tracks watching their grace and fierceness as they practiced along the wall—that is the primary view from their campus. There is a tension and even aggression on the edge of daily life for the students. And it is beautiful to see them rise above it. An ugly separation wall barring their view of Jerusalem, that simultaneously limits their ability to maintain family and friend ties, reach their full economic potential, and basic freedom of movement.' - Tanya Habjouqa
