From Turtle Island to Palestine: Occupation is a Crime is a photo essay project inspired by the international protests on May 15th, 2011, the 63rd anniversary of the Nakba, (Arabic for catastrophe). It is a date to commemorate the violent displacement of Palestinian people to make way for the new Israeli state. The goal of the project is to create an international message of solidarity with the Palestinian people that continue to rally and resist Israeli occupation. In every photograph the Palestinian flag is being held up in front of landmarks or popular spots in Toronto, demonstrating the support for Palestinian people that exists in the city.
