Today we feature a special presentation by two staff members of the Palestinian organization, Al Haq. Aseil Abu Baker and Marya Farah spoke at the Harvard Law School describing a new Al Haq campaign called “Facts on the Ground.”

Al-Haq is an independent Palestinian non-governmental human rights organization based in Ramallah, West Bank. Established in 1979 to protect and promote human rights and the rule of law in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT), the organization has special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council.

The Facts On The Ground Campaign highlights Israel’s exploitation of Palestinian natural resources and the resultant violations of international human rights and humanitarian law. “Facts on the Ground” brings together past reports and virtual field visits by Al-Haq on water, natural gas, oil, Dead Sea minerals, and land.

Al-Haq emphasizes that the discourse regarding Israel’s prolonged occupation of Palestine needs to be expanded to address another root cause: the economic benefits Israel reaps through its exploitation of Palestinian natural resources. Consequently, the Palestinian economy is obstructed, and the Occupied Palestinian Territory as a whole is relegated to a captive market.
This Week In Palestine (a weekly part of Truth and Justice Radio) is an award-winning three-quarter-hour segment of news from Palestine and discussion of issues relevant to the Palestinians' struggle for freedom from Israel's brutal military occupation and colonization of their homeland. It speaks from the point of view of Palestinians and those who care about them. It's a regular part of Truth and Justice Radio, aired Sundays 6-10am ET on WZBC 90.3FM, Newton, MA, streaming live and archived for two weeks at; TJR's website,, has a link to This Week In Palestine archives back thru 1-6-2008; editions are also accessible at or by navigating through our playlists.
