The International Solidarity Movement (ISM) facilitates people from around the world traveling to Palestine to work in solidarity with Palestinians who are resisting the occupation non-violently. The ISM has a particular focus on direct action and participants have engaged in activities such as roadblock removal, military checkpoint watch, accompaniment of ambulances, demonstrations, marches and others. For more information about the ISM please check out the website www.palsolidarity.org.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Peace Under Fire: Israel, Palestine, and the International Solidarity
Edited by Nicholas Blincoe, Hussein Khalili, Marissa Mclaughlin,
Sainath, and Josie Sandercock
The last two years have been the most brutal in the entire thirty-six
Year history of Israel’s military occupation of the West Bank and Gaza
Strip; indeed the most violent since the creation of Israel itself. The
International Solidarity Movement (ISM) was founded as a peaceful resistance to that violence. Its highly visible actions, which have included breaking the sieges in Ramallah and Bethlehem, as well as saving countless lives, have shone a spotlight on Israel’s occupation.
Outlawed in Israel and nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, the ISM has threatened the governing coalition with fears that Israeli opinion might at last be turning against them.
In showing what risks Palestinians take, ISM volunteers have also tragically been targeted. The deaths of Rachel Corrie and Tom Hurndall, as well as the shootings of Kate Edwards, Caoimhe Butterley and Brian
Avery, have never been fully explained, covered up in the US and UK and brushed aside in Israel—an unfortunate consequence of Israel’s “war on terror.”
Collecting previously published news articles on the movement, giving accounts drawn from web-logs and diaries as they happened, including the last writings of murdered American Rachel Corrie and contributions from the Hurndall family, Peace Under Fire reveals the real horror of life under occupation and describes the first signs of a new wave of international solidarity.
The editors are all members of the International Solidarity Movement.
Novelists, human rights activists, and academics, they divide time between various countries of residence and Palestine.
