Silwan

Archaeological excavations for the City of David in Silwan, Jerusalem, are displacing Palestinians. Palestinian homes are being demolished to make way for underground tunnels to expand the archaeological site, and build new homes for Jewish settlers. "Our goal is to turn all this land into Jewish hands," states the ELAD Association, the settler-NGO directing the excavations.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
