This is the first in a series of updates from IJAN participants in the Stop the JNF Campaign and the Plant-a-Tree Delgation.
The Plant-A-Tree in Palestine Project is a joint project of the Middle East Children’s Alliance, Stop the Wall, the Palestinian Farmer’s Union, and the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network to support the on-going struggle of Palestinians to rebuild by providing resources for villages to plant trees that are indigenous to Palestine’snatural environment and agricultural life. Participants in the delegation will plant the trees with community members joined by their fellow Palestinians. They will spend a day replanting trees in villages and homes that had their trees uprooted by the Israeli military and/or the Jewish National Fund.
