Exhibition features photos from the ongoing popular struggle against Israel’s apartheid wall, and daily life and survival in Bil’in, Palestine.

Bil’in, a village of less than 2000 residents in the West Bank, recently launched a law suit against Greenpark and Greenmount, two companies registered in Montreal, who are alleged to have ties to illegal settlement development on Bil’in’s land. Preliminary proceedings are already underway at the Superior Court of Quebec in Montreal, and Tadamon! Montreal will be actively supporting the lawsuit throughout 2009.

ActiveStills is a group of documentary photographers acting for social change, convinced in the power of photography as a vehicle of change through awareness. They seek to bring awareness to issues and situations that they believe create social injustice, through images that question the society in which we live in.

ActiveStills operates in Israel and Palestine and focuses on social and political documenting, projects production, publications and open exhibitions at topics in which the public is not exposed in its daily informative routines, managed by the established media.
