Yasmin Eran-Verdi

My name is Yasmin Eran-Verdi. I was born and raised in the German Colony in Jerusalem as an Israeli citizen to a family where the discourse about human rights, and in particular, the rights of the Palestinian people is always a concern. As a teenager, I started attending demonstrations and accompanying shepherds, and when I was 18 and required to join the army, I refused to serve for reasons of conscience. Two years later, I participated in an Arabic-language course for activists in Masafar Yatta. About two years have passed since then, and I have remained active in the area, as well as in East Jerusalem. The activists are an independent group and not part of an organization, although we cooperate with many movements and organizations such as B’Tselem, Breaking the Silence, Hakel and more. Most of our activity is documenting the situations that occur in the field in front of the army/police/settlers and Palestinians, as well as participating in demonstrations.
