To remain on their land, Palestinian farmers need to resist elements of the occupation including the expropriation of their land and resources, the damaging of crops and the restriction of markets. Fishermen need access to their traditional fishing grounds rather than the 3 mile limit imposed by Israeli force.
This talk explores the impact of occupation on food production, farmers, fishermen and their families, and how a combination of attacks and administrative restrictions serve to further Israel’s colonial project. The talk will explore the creative ways that agricultural workers are resisting and the imperative for the international community to stand with them in solidarity in their fight for their land and rights.
There will also be some Palestinian Fair Trade products on sale at this event.
