Abu Ali, 69-years-old Bedouin man, walking on the land leading to his olive trees in the unrecognised village of Sararat, in West Bank zone C (Israeli controlled), close to Jerusalem, the capital of the country. The Israeli government is forcing him to move from a land he lives in since 50 years. Part of the separation wall aimed at protecting the large Jewish settlements in the area has been planned to pass through his propriety. Some tribes, like the Suahre, living in this area, are completely surrounded by settlements with the intent of limiting the Bedouins in the smallest amount of land possible. According to the Government's settlements-expansion plan and land seizure programs, there is a strong interest in convincing the Bedouins to move to pre-selected towns, such as Segev Shalom and Rahat, a real city counting more than 40.000 people. Numbering around 200.000 in Israel, the Bedouins constitute the native ethnic group of these areas, they farm, grow wheat, olives and live in complete self sufficiency. Many of them were in these lands long before the Israeli State was created and their traditional semi-nomadic lifestyle is now threatened by subtle Government policies.
Stephanie, 21, member of the Freegan community in New York, standing by the food recovered from dump sites along 3rd Avenue in Manhattan, New York, NY.,USA. Freegans are a community of people who aims at recovering wasted food, books, clothing, office supplies and other items from the refuse of retail stores, frequently discarded in brand new condition. They recover goods not for profit, but to serve their own immediate needs and to share freely with others. According to a study by a USDA-commissioned study by Dr. Timothy Jones at the University of Arizona, half of all food in the United States is wasted at a cost of $100 billion dollars every year. Yet 4.4 million people in the United States alone are classified by the USDA as hungry. Global estimates place the annual rate of starvation deaths at well over 8 million. The massive waste generated in the process fills landfills and consumes land as new landfills are built. This waste stream also pollutes the environment, damages public health as landfills chemicals leak into the ground, and incinerators spew heavy metals back into the atmosphere. Freegans practice strategies for everyday living based on sharing resources, minimizing the detrimental impact of our consumption, and reducing and recovering waste and independence from the profit-driven economy. They are dismayed by the social and ecological costs of an economic model where only profit is valued, at the expense of the environment. In a society that worships competition and self-interest, Freegans advocate living ethical, free, and happy lives centred around community and the notion that a healthy society must function on interdependence. Freegans also believe that people have a right and responsibility to take back control of their time.
Kholiswa, 1 and a half year old, HIV child in her bad at Thembacare. Her mother is also and in need of second line treatment for Tuberculosis. Thembacare, a children hospice in Athlone run by Thembalitsha www.thembalitsha.org.za, a local faith-based organisation working in the field of HIV/AIDS, is also partially looking after the mother, in the intent of helping the child also through family care. Thembacare has 18 beds at their disposal and was generally home of very sick children that would have eventually died. Thanks to the newly developed ARV drugs for children and private funding, Thembacare can now lengthens the life of these babies and give them the assistance and love very much needed in their growth. ARVs will have to be taken for the rest of their life for them to survive, work and help others
