Nonviolent Resistance in the South Hebron Hills - Cassandra Dixon

The worst worries of a child’s school day should be homework. Maybe a lost book, or an argument with a friend. No child’s walk to school should routinely involve armed soldiers and fear of sometimes being chased and assaulted by angry adults.

Illegal settlements and outposts isolate and separate their villages and soldiers are a constant in their lives.
