Dear supporters of Palestine and the International Solidarity Movement,
Please join us in bottling delicious FAIR TRADE ORGANIC EXTRA VIRGIN Palestinian olive oil to benefit Palestinian farmers and nonviolent resistance in Palestine. The fun, fellowship and aroma of olive oil are hard to beat. The bottled oil will be sold to raise money and awareness for ISM.
Stopping nonviolent resistance volunteers from entering Palestinian villages has become a major priority for the Israeli regime, but we continue to send them and to provide training. One of our volunteers from Northern California is in al-Khalil (Hebron) now, accompanying Palestinian children to school while settler children spit on and throw rocks at them. She also raised funds for a Palestinian children's summer camp, and the Northern California ISM group is supporting the al-Khalill and Nablus ISM groups with funds for medical kits.
WHEN: 10:00 a.m. TO 4:00 p.m., Sunday, July 14
WHERE: 2022 Blake St., Berkeley, off Shattuck.
