October 27, 2014 |

Adeela rose early and dressed quickly. Today was the Day of Action. It had been organised by the Union of Agricultural Workers, as an event to demonstrate for the international boycott of Israeli agricultural products and Israeli agricultural export corporations.

Adeela shifted uncomfortably from side to side on her makeshift bed; a mattress on the floor. She wanted to block her ears so that she wouldn’t hear the shouting that had been going on in the next room since early evening, but she also wanted to know what was being said.

Adeela carried a glass of sugared water for Berel and placed it near him. Refusing to look at her, he slowly lifted the glass and took a sip, staring into it as though he were unsure of what else may be in there.
