Watch: New music video (finally) lets Palestinian children express their rights

"Oh world...I have the right for the world to hear my words". The lyrics of this short video by Palestinian Odeh Films capture that which we rarely see: The child's perspective in times of hardship and injustice.

ps.1 You’ll also follow one young Palestinian on his walks through the local neighbourhood, another rare and joyous glimpse of everyday life beyond the headlines.

ps.2 The young kid who sings at 2:52, could he be the next Mohammed Assaf…? “I have the right to carry my dreams,” he starts, and then, “And not be stopped by violence or at a checkpoint. My dream in my bag should not be searched. And my dream should not be tied or disabled.”
