Photographs of some interesting art by Palestinian activists and well-known artists like Banksy and Blu, but the real story belongs to the voices of Palestinians whose lives have been disrupted or almost destroyed by the wall Israel has built through occupied Palestine. The resilence of these people is amazing. The photographs give you a sense of the scale of the wall, which news stories on t.v. cannot capture.
