Citizenship Lecture: Human Rights under Occupation: The Case of Palestine

In this presentation Rima Essa and Amit Gilutz of Israeli Human Rights Group B'Tselem will discuss today's reality in the Occupied Territories, after more than 52 years of occupation, and present B'Tselem's seminal Camera Project.

B'Tselem - The Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories - strives to end Israel's occupation, recognizing that this is the only way to achieve a future that ensures human rights, democracy, liberty and equality to all people, Palestinian and Israeli alike, living on the bit of land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. B'Tselem means that various political routes can bring about this future, and while they claim that it is not B'Tselem's role to choose among them, they state firmly that continued occupation is not an option.

In 2006, B'Tselem launched the camera project which was initially intended to document violations against palestinians in the occupied territories, and that could potentially be used in the courts. Since then the camera project has developed and taken on new forms and meanings.
