Sunday, November 26, 2017: ISM Olive Oil Party to Benefit Palestinian Farmers and Nonviolent Resistance
Where: Grassroots house, 2022 Blake St., Berkeley, CA (between Ashby and Berkeley BART)
When: 10AM to 5:00PM
Info: 510-236-4250, www.ism-norcal.org
We’ll have FAIR TRADE ORGANIC EXTRA VIRGIN Palestinian olive oil, zaatar (thyme), kufiyas, soap, books, flags, stickers, the jewelry of Katie Miranda, and much more. Please join us to benefit Palestinian farmers and nonviolent resistance in Palestine. If you only want to buy, that’s OK, too. The fun, fellowship and aroma of olive oil are hard to beat. The oil and other items will be sold to raise money and awareness for the work of the ISM.
Stopping nonviolent resistance volunteers from entering Palestinian communities is a major priority for the Israeli regime, but we continue to send them and to provide training. Meet our volunteers and listen to their stories as you bottle oil.
You are welcome to bring food, but we will have some typical Palestinian dishes to offer as well. Bring family, friends, etc. Our products make great gifts with a human rights message. It all helps Palestinian farmers and businesses as well as nonviolent resistance in Palestine.
This year we sent $12,000 worth of cameras to Palestinian organizations that are documenting human rights violations on the ground. One of our cameras was the second of Emad Burnat’s Five Broken Cameras, nominated for an Academy Award. Another captured the murder of Abdul-Fattah Al-Sharif, shot in the head by Israeli soldier Elor Azaria as Al-Sharif lay wounded on the ground.
We are also part of the organizing committee of the second North America Nakba Tour currently speaking at 30 venues throughout the eastern US and Canada.
Thanks for your support, and we hope to see you there.
