Seeds of Peace (50 minutes) 2008
By André Kloer of Holland
Seeds of Peace: workers’ rights in a legal no-mans’ land tells the story of Palestinians who work in the Israeli settlements on the West Bank. One of these settlements is Nizzane Ha Shalom (Seeds of Peace). Because of the questionable judicial status of the Israeli settlements on the West Bank, it is unclear which laws apply to Palestinians who work there. There is also weak enforcement of the few laws that do exist. The consequence of this judicial ambiguity is that Palestinians work in the settlements without minimum wage and legal protection. Despite this, more and more Palestinians are working in these settlements because the Palestinian economy is unable to create enough jobs. Jawdat Talousy was one of these workers and defended his rights for all he was worth. He tried to unite the workers in order to demand better labor conditions and was fired.
