In the 1980's, the houses of all residents of Susiya were demolished and the community displaced. Some fled the area, whilst other remained and established new houses on other areas of their historic lands. Those who stayed within Susiya's land, has faced an ongoing struggle against displacement and demolitions ever since. Today, their struggle includes cases in the Israeli Supreme Court and today, with only tents left standing, the entire village is again facing demolition.

‘From Al-Araqib to Susiya’                       Film                      15 minutes                                2013
 
In a new film, Adalah captures the stories of two Palestinian villages, Al-Araqib and Susiya – one in Israel, one in the West Bank – that share a single story of struggle against forced displacement. The film documents a journey between the two villages and two communities, whose very existence on their land is under threat today. It also demonstrates how, in the face of a single Israeli policy to forcibly displace Palestinians on both sides of the Green Line, the people are drawing on deep reserves of courage and steadfastness to remain on their land.
