A protest through the eyes of a street vendor

By Jacob Anderson

In East Jerusalem, there’s a protest that happens every Friday. It’s a mixed group, of Palestinians and Israelis. They’re opposing Jewish settlers who they say have unfairly moved into Palestinian homes, kicking families out. The neighborhood is called Sheikh Jarrah. Protesters have been there every week for more than a year and a half, since 2009, and one young man is turning the regular event into a business opportunity.
