A tiny piece of land on the South East coast of the Mediterranean. Traversed by ancient trade routes this land gave the world the first monotheistic religions, and, next door to it, the ancestor of our own alphabet was born.
Palestine is like a microcosm where major powers and powerful interests collide. Where individual destinies are determined not by the individuals themselves, but by the powers that be. Where one feels helpless in the face of overwhelming oppression backed by the all-encompassing propaganda machine.
It is often said that the Palestinian issue is complex. The conflict is said to have roots in ancient times. But is Palestine that far that we shouldn’t care to unpick the propaganda web, to understand?
Having endured centuries of oppression under military occupation Lithuania can now proudly enjoy its freedom. Palestine, however, is still striving for theirs.
We invite you to use this website to learn about Palestine and to discover the other side of the story.
“We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians.” – Nelson Mandela
