Activist profile: battling for identity

Created on 01 December 2011

Khulood Badawi is a Palestinian activist who was born and raised in Nazareth's Safafra neighborhood, which she describes as "one big refugee camp." Like most of Safafra's residents, Badawi's family are refugees from Saffuriya, a nearby Palestinian village that was bombed by Israeli forces in 1948.

In this short video, Badawi discusses her activism, which Israeli authorities responded to by expelling her from university. She also describes her struggle to find her place inside of Israel. "I'm part of the Israeli society," she reflects, "I'm part of this country. But it's a country that conquered me and is responsible for my nakba." (Arabic for catastrophe, the nakba refers to the expulsion of 700,000-800,000 Palestinians in 1947-1948).
