For millions of Palestinians, the ability to move freely around their homeland is a privilege few are granted. Walls of concrete and barbed wire keep many of them locked in and many of their relatives and friends locked out.
"My sister can't come back," says Gaza resident Farah Baker. "If she wanted to come back, she couldn’t come from the Egyptian side. If she came from the Israeli side, maybe she can, if my Mom died or something. Maybe she could come, but it’s almost impossible."
It has been this way since the end of 1967 Arab-Israeli War. The war resulted in Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. Fifty years later getting to work, school or a medical appointment remains difficult.
So how do Palestinians navigate these challenges? Find out when Palestinians who've been both locked in and locked out join The Stream to share their stories.
