Why does Israel keep Palestinians separated from the water and cropland they need to feed themselves?

Farmer’s who have followed the trend into mono-culture, must sell a single commodity to gain access into the capitalist economy. Living on a very narrow margin makes them hesitant to try anything other than what the seed and feed “experts” recommend.

In coal mining towns in WV, the growing of gardens was made difficult due to lack of arable land or through zoning regulations.


If miner’s couldn’t feed themselves, they wouldn’t go out on strike.
