Al-Jazeera: Video diary: Palestinian family resists eviction - 21 Apr 09

[COMMENT: Please see related article by Dr. Marcy Newman, two posts below.]

"Members of a Palestinian family who have been served an eviction notice to leave their home in the Sheik Jarrah neighbourhood in East Jerusalem are taking it in turns to stay awake in case Israeli authorities come to force them out.
Rami Hannoun, one of the family members, said: "The Israelis say they own this land, that they own it since a long time ago. But we also have papers that say we own this land". "
