My story

[p]UPDATE EARLY MAY[/p][p]I completed my walk and thank you very much to everyone who has contributed – I am still collecting and trying to reach my target, so please do help if you can![/p][p]I managed to do seven walks as I said, though I added a walk to Jabal al-Baba and talked about Azzayem in my walk to Zaitouneh checkpoint. It is hard for Palestinians to reach Azzayem. The total was around 45 km.[/p][p]I also made a film of each of the walks which you can see here.

It will link my walk also to Workers’ Day, as many of the workers in Abu Dis queue for “permissions” to go to Jerusalem (now on the other side of the Wall) for work.[/i][/p][p][i]I will start on 17th April and do seven walks starting and finishing at the Youth Club in the middle of Abu Dis - one of these walks every other day, finishing by 1st May.[/i][/p][p][i]I will send back photos, interviews and stories from all of these places:[/i][/p][p][i]· Separation Wall at Kubsa[/i][/p][p][i]· Container checkpoint[/i][/p][p][i]· Wad Abu Hindi (the settlement rubbish tip), the tunnel under the Qidar road, the Bedouin threatened with eviction[/i][/p][p][i]· Duwar Wad an Nar (next to MaaleAdumim settlement)[/i][/p][p][i]· Sheikh Saad checkpoint[/i][/p][p][i]· Zaitouneh checkpoint[/i][/p][p][i]· Azzayem checkpoint[/i][/p][p][i]I think the total will be around 50km but will share with you the exact distance when I have finished. I will be grateful for your interest and for anything you are able to contribute – thank you.[/i][/p][p][i] [/i][/p]
