Gazan writer Rawan Yaghi talks about her vision of the future as written in Comma Press’ Sci-Fi anthology, Palestine +100. In this collection 12 Palestinian writers are asked: what might your country look like in 2048 – a century after the Nakba?
How might this event – which, in 1948, saw the expulsion of over 700,000 Palestinian Arabs from their homes – reach across a century of occupation, oppression, and political isolation, to shape the country and its people? Will a lasting peace finally have been reached, or will future technology only amplify the suffering and mistreatment of Palestinians?
