The loss of individual lives in Israel/Palestine as a result of the Israeli occupation is too much for any of us to comprehend at this point. The number of injuries and the psychic toll is even greater. We do not see the full picture. Most often the perspectives that are privileged are extremist ones.
As well, we do not see or hear about the many actions by those who work for a viable solution and ultimately peace. Activists and ordinary citizens are taking part in protests, are involved in actions of cooperation, and are working together so that a different voice may be heard.
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET is a video documentation of a specific moment of resistance and peace actions by Palestinians, Israelis and international activists at the end of December 2001.
