Palestinian Ayed Morar and Israeli Jonathan Pollack are friends and major figures in the Palestinian-led nonviolent struggle against Israel’s military occupation. Ayed led his village of Budrus in a victory for nonviolence over the Israeli military in 2003-2004. Through a campaign of 50 protests, the village pushed the Wall’s path off village land and to the Green Line. Jonathan, from Tel Aviv, was one of the first Israeli activists to travel regularly to the Occupied West Bank to support nonviolent resistance. He has organized hundreds of Israelis to participate in Palestinian-led nonviolent protest over the last two years. Both Ayed and Jonathan have recently been imprisoned by the Israelis for their nonviolent resistance organizing.
