The next evening, we were hosted by the Union of Women’s Health Committees at the home of Rawda Odeh, whose son Louaï et Ubaï, is a political prisoner serving a life sentence.

Rawda told us, “As former political prisoners, his father and I are not allowed to visit him, even though I have cancer. In my hand is the key to the home my family lost when Israel seized the remaining 22% of Palestine in 1967. Palestinians will never give up the right to return to our homes.”
