Graffiti on camp's landscape

Rashidieh Camp is a Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon, located south of the city of Tyre (Sur). In 2003 there were 25,580 registered refugees in the camp.

The camp’s physical landscape signifies the growth of Palestinian nationalism in refugee camps. Palestinians express their hope to return to their homes by displaying murals, posters and flags which clearly portrays their attempts to produce and reproduce Palestinian national identity.[1]
