Support the Plant-a-Tree in Palestine Delegation

Last year we sent a delegation to Palestineto document evidence and learn about the role of the Jewish National Fund inthe on-going theft of Palestinian land and property land and cover-up of thedisplacement of the Palestinian people. 

Per the request of the Palestinian FarmersUnion, Stop the Wall Anti-Apartheid Committee, the Palestinian BDS NationalCommittee and the villages who have lost trees, agricultural plots, farms andhomes to the Israeli military, this year we are sending another delegation toplant trees in villages that are welcoming the effort to replant a fraction ofwhat they have lost. 

We are writing to ask you for your supportfor the January 5-14, 2013 Plant-a-Tree in Palestine delegation to buildsupport for the Campaign to stop the Jewish National Fund (JNF). Weare sending two delegates from the United States who will be planting trees anddocumenting the trip – taking photos and capturing video footage to createmedia and political education materials which we will use to grow thecampaign.

The delegation will be planting 112 trees in3 villages, one tree for each year the JNF has been colonizingPalestine. Many Palestinians have lost fruit bearing trees to JNFbulldozers- olive trees that had been tended for up to 1,000years and citrus trees tended for generations. Members of the PalestinianFarmers Union and other local farmers will choose which kinds of trees theywant to plant. Delegation participants will be activelyparticipating alongside Palestinian farmers in resisting the goals ofthe JNF.

Please considermaking a contribution to the delegation and/or planting a tree in Palestine. Each tree planted will godirectly to one of the three villages and will contribute toward thedelegation’s expenses.
