On Sunday, November 13th at 15:30 you are invited, as every week, to join the protest watch in Lehavim junction. After the Israel Land Administration demolished 33 structures and threatened them with a lawsuit of millions, the situation of the Bedouins in the last week has deteriorated. We still need help with olive harvest because the army has not give enough permits to the Palestinian farmers.
Last Sunday we participated in an exciting event that took place in Beit Haam, 69 Rothschild Street. The theme was “Activism from a Place of Faith.” 18 Israeli civil society organizations speak out following the attacks on Peace Now.
We continue to be worried about the Civil Administration’s ongoing threats to the villages in the South Hebron Hills area (it is important to be updated regarding the legal advisor’s reply to the demand not to demolish Dqeiqa). The electricity system of Manzel, a Palestinian village near the settlement Mtzudot Yehuda, is in a danger to being demolished.
We need a volunteer for few hours a week to help update the website in word press and the social networks. Please write to: firstname.lastname@example.org | Shabbat Shalom
