Negev Bedouin

Here is a new video by Nirah Shirazipour, the producer of EyesInfinite Films, on the situation of the unrecognised Bedouin villages in the Negev desert region of southern Israel. The film shows how the state of Israel has oppressed the 160,000 members of this ancient indigenous population by uprooting them from their land and communities, through the denial of basic resource allocation, the right to vote, house demolitions, land appropriation and strategic exposure to industrial pollution.
