In the plight for justice and to counter the hegemonistic ambitions of Israel, dabke has become one of many ways to nonviolently resist the illegal occupationn.
As students for justice in Palestine, we did a flashmob dabkeh to show that Palestinian culture is alive and well, and that the whitewashing, the weak justifications, of human rights violations is not acceptable.

SJP started Israeli Apartheid Week with a Mock Wall to represent the real separation wall that Israel has built in the West Bank, snaking through Palestinian villages. The wall often surrounds villiages from three sides, inhibiting free movement, trade, communication, and forcing Palestinians to wait long hours at checkpoints.

SJP kicked off Israeli Apartheid Week today with our Mock Apartheid Wall on Hayden Lawn.
