[Image: Another photo from the Students Under Occupation Exhibit, this one by Essam Al-Rimawi of the Qalandia Checkpoint, Ramallah-Jerusalem, July 2005. "Education is the main foundation for building freedom and independence and as such is one of our strongest available tools to stand against the occupation. So, as students at Palestinian universities, we a have major role to play in the society. But we also face a lot of pressures and obstacles under the Israeli occupation, such as the checkpoints, closures and isolation. The Israeli occupation doesn’t want a well educated, intelligent Palestinian population to exist. It wants an underdeveloped Palestinian society to ensure the continued domination of the occupation."]
