Coming to Global Voices: Recycle

Zarqa, Jordan, is a rundown, industrial metropolis and birthplace of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, mastermind of al Qaeda operations in Iraq who was killed by American forces. Recycle reveals distinct yet intertwined stories of three native sons of Zarqa, mainly Abu Ammar, who has to choose between collecting recycling to support his family, being a jihadist, or going abroad to make money.
