Palestine: 2005 Olive Harvest Campaign

International Solidarity Movement (ISM) started their annual Olive Harvest Campaign in Palestine. The olive harvest season is annual activity which starts on October 15 and ends on November 15 of each year. ISM says that the presence of internationals during harvest time has proven in the past to help limit and decrease the severity of attacks. After a two-day training session, volunteers for the Olive Harvest Campaign will stay in Palestinian homes in West Bank communities and accompany Palestinian families to their olive groves to serve as witnesses to document and expose attacks by settlers — supported by the Israeli Army — on farmers and their families.
