Synopsis
5 million Palestinians live in the occupied territories under Israeli military rule, 2 million of them in the Gaza Strip, under total siege for the past several years. “The Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip has already lasted for 54 years.” This statement does not tell much about occupation. What does 'occupation' imply?
The first 54 years aims to provide an exclusive insight into the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian people while it is still ongoing. Describing their orders, their missions and their actions, Israeli soldiers witnesses report on the mechanisms of oppression of Palestinians from 1967 to the present day. With these testimonies, they reveal the factory of the occupation machine.
