Update of lessons learned in life, demonstration schedule, olive picking schedules, and some news and analysis.
(BETHLEHEM) - It has been over three years since I returned to Palestine from living in the US for nearly three decades. Those three plus years in Palestine have been truly phenomenal and inspirational. I took time to change and update the lessons I learned from life especially from those three years (and from >30 years of activism). https://qumsiyeh.org/
OLIVE HARVESTS: There are literally dozens of (solidarity) olive harvest programs around the occupied territories. Here are just two examples.
Joint Advocacy (YMCA/YWCA) with Alternative Tourism Group and the Visit Palestine Program
International Solidarity Movement Olive harvest programs: http://palsolidarity.org/2011/
Tree of Life conferences in NY City; Old Lyme, CT; Hyannis, MA; and shorter versions at Harvard University and Hartford, CT. Info on all of the conferences is on the web-site: http://www.tolef.org> www.tolef.org
