We will have a display of the Mock Apartheid Wall, which symbolically represents the separation barrier erected through Palestine, cutting off people from work, schools, and hospitals. A mock checkpoint will give participants an idea of what it is like to have your freedom of movement restricted. Free food will be distributed!
