Palestine camp

Rammi took me one morning to the "Palestinian camp" which is lived in by palestinian people some refugees that aren't allowed back into palestine by the Israelis. He said he used to come here all the time when he was younger and had friends that lived there for abit. The place started out as a camp quite a few years ago and has now been built up into a little village where they sell fruit and clothes and all kinds. I was told these people live on there own here and the police don't even come down because the people there hate them and some have guns if they start anything. Loads of little kids were coming up to us taking the piss saying take a photo of that guy hes weird. Most people were friendly and liked being photographed but i had to be real careful who i took photos of especially of woman in the street. the living conditions here seemed pretty poor and recives little money from the goverment. Some people still live in tents outside the village. Heres the photos:
