2022 Blake St. Berkeley, Ca
This is a call to join the struggle against human rights abuses, ethnic cleansing, inhumane occupation and cruel oppression taking place in Palestine. There is a growing grassroots non-violent movement in Palestine, particularly around the building of the Apartheid Wall. The International Solidarity Movement (ISM) is asking for volunteers to join our next campaign to help us create a large multi-national civilian force against the violence of the Israeli occupation. Come answer the call in this critical time, and be a part of FREEDOM SUMMER 2004 (July 1st - August 15th)!
There will be an informational meeting in the Bay Area for people who are interested in traveling to Palestine. The meeting will provide opportunities to talk to local volunteers who have gone to Palestine with ISM, receive logistical information and ask questions in order to help you make your decision. We will be showing a short film that will show ISM volunteers on the ground in Palestine. There will also be information about the local in-depth trainings that are scheduled in May and June.
If you are thinking about going to Palestine, have concerns/questions, have already made your decision to go, or if you just want more information about ISM…you are highly encouraged to attend.

The International Solidarity Movement is a Palestinian-led movement of Palestinian and international activists working to raise awareness of the struggle for Palestinian freedom and to end the Israeli occupation. We use nonviolent, direct-action methods of resistance to confront and challenge illegal Israeli occupation forces and policies.
