Give voice to the Palestinian call for freedom

Freedom Summer Palestine 2005 is a Palestinian non violent campaign

against Israeli occupation — This summer, With the participation of

international supporters, Palestinians will continue their

long-standing mobilization for nonviolent direct action against the

occupation and draw the world's attention to what is really happening

in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

While the world is hearing that the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is

being resolved and that Sharon has become "a herald of peace,"

apartheid continues to be reinforced each day in Occupied

Palestine. It is more important than ever to come to Palestine this

summer to join Palestinian nonviolent resistance to the Israeli

military occupation!

Palestinian communities are asking ISM activists to support their

nonviolent demonstrations against the continued construction of The

illegal Annexation Wall and the demolitions of Palestinian homes, and

in their various efforts to remain steadfast on the soil of their

ancestors, despite the continuing land theft and the constant violence

perpetuated by the Israeli military and illegal settlers.

Freedom Summer, beginning June 25th and continuing 57 days, one day

for every year of displacement and dispossession since 1948, is a

mobilization of the Palestinian people for justice, basic human rights

and freedom.

Like the Civil Rights Movement in the United States, India's National

Liberation Movement and the Anti-Apartheid Movement in South Africa,

The Palestinian communities utilise nonviolent strategies to counter


This is not an issue of "Palestinian against Israeli" or "Arab against

Jew." It is a struggle of humanity and freedom against injustice and


How It Works

Two-day training sessions will be conducted by ISM trainers every

Sunday and Monday of Freedom Summer in Ramallah. The first training of

the campaign will be June 24 and 25. On completion of training, groups

of internationals will be dispatched to various regions to join local

non violent resistance activities.

Freedom Summer actions will be directed at Israeli occupation measures

that deny Palestinians basic freedom: The Annexation Wall,

checkpoints, roadblocks, settlement expansion, and political prisoners.

Plans for Freedom Summer 2005 are being developed by Palestinian

communities. Examples of likely actions include:

• Supporting Palestinian communities in their peaceful protesting of

construction of The Annexation Wall in West Bank villages where Wall

construction threatens to cut off villagers from their farmland and


• Supporting action by communities removing roadblocks that are

strangling West Bank villages.

• Maintaining a presence in communities in the Hebron region that are

under constant threat from Israeli settlers who are attempting to

force Palestinians from their land.

• Working in support of Palestinian rights in East Jerusalem and to

resist the Israeli government's attempt to isolate East Jerusalem, the

Palestinian capital, from the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

. Joining Palestinian families and communities in resisting non

violently and highlighting the demolition of Palestinian homes.

. Joining Palestinian communities in Non violent protest against the

Industrial settlement complexes that are stealing and contaminating

Palestinian land.

• Acting in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners, thousands of whom

are being held in Israeli prisons in violation of international law

for struggling for Palestinian rights.

• Reporting to the media and the world on the daily criminal actions

of the Israeli military and Israeli settlers in the Occupied

Palestinian Territories.

Bring the world's eyes to Palestine- Teams of international civilians

will be hosted by Palestinians communities and will work directly with

Palestinian coordinators and local peace activists.

At the local level, Palestinians are organizing, training and

coordinating a summer program of activities and actions to involve all

elements of Palestinian society and international supporters.

Obviously not everyone is comfortable taking the same risks or

participating in direct confrontations with soldiers, police and

settlers. Therefore, local committees will determine various roles and

levels of participation for all, so that there is something to do for


Activists are required to make a commitment to non-violence

principles, adherence to group process and respect of Palestinian

culture and Palestinian community leadership for the duration of their

stay in Palestine.
