About

Sixteen Minutes to Palestine (SMP) explores the richness and authenticity of the Palestinian identity through original commentary, insightful analyses, and creative content relating to the Palestinian struggle wherever and however it may occur. Sixteen Minutes to Palestine examines the impact of the occupation in a way that goes beyond figures and statistics and draws connections to faces, stories, narratives, and visual evidences.

The name Sixteen Minutes to Palestine refers to the time it took David Ben-Gurion to read the Establishment of the State of Israel on May 14, 1948, thereby institutionalizing the subjugation and mass displacement of the Palestinian people.
