The Quiet Deportation
Since 1967, more than 14,000 Jerusalemites have lost their residency IDs and, as such, their right to live in their city of birth. Termed the quiet deportation, Israel’s creeping annexation is organised through a web of discriminatory policies – including ID revocation, the ban on family unification, and barriers to child registration. This presentation will delve into these measures, examine their far-reaching consequences, and focus on what steps can be taken to pressure Israel to end its efforts at ethnic cleansing.
“The Quiet Deportation” – Palestinian Residency Rights and Colonisation in Jerusalem will look at th is in detail.
