Baladi – Rooted Resistance

Date grant awarded: July 11, 2019

Baladi – Rooted Resistance is a series of stories of Palestinians resisting Israeli colonization and occupation with seeds, wild foraged plants, and homegrown vegetables. These are Palestinians who believe in the food politics and food sovereignty intersect with the struggle for self-determination and freedom. This multimedia project is the work of a multidisciplinary team who believe in an intersectional approach to activism, including writer Sandra Guimarães (Brazil) and photojournalists Anne Paq (France), Craig Redmond (UK) and Ahmad Al-Bazz (Palestine).

The funding from this grant will support the development of our website, allowing us to share the agro-resistance stories with a global audience in a variety of multimedia and text-based ways.
