Crimes of neocolonialism in modern Palestine: land and freedom

Author(s): Stratos Georgoulas

Based on a field visit. I aim to explore aspects of “crimes of neocolonialism” in modern Palestine from the mid-20th century till the present. Oppression, displacement, and colonization take place mainly through land confiscation and denial of use and access, and (Israeli) state suppression and criminalization are a usual answer to Palestinian resistance. Using a personal narrative too, I will try to present the mechanisms, uncover their consequences of the above and connect with concepts such as neocolonialism, war crimes, and crimes against humanity.
