The Summons

by Mark Chmiel

We refuse to be strangled by the wall in silence. In a famous Palestinian short story by Ghassan Kanafani, “Men in the Sun,” Palestinian workers suffocate inside a tanker truck. Upon discovering them, the driver screams, ‘Why didn’t you bang on the sides of the tank?’ In Bilin, we are banging, we are screaming…. Please stand with us.
