Rada Daniell reports from an IWPS trip to Palestine during the last olive harvest, “Every year there is another line of catalog-style settlement buildings spilled over the hills, another patch of land cleared out.” International volunteers help Palestinians under occupation harvest olives, then go home to break a de facto information embargo on the reality in Palestine.

Brad Parker explains, “Everybody can understand the physical violence against a child. I think that’s a universal red line that exists for most people. And in that, I think was the overarching sort of consideration in shaping the campaign. We wanted to have something that was really basic, straightforward, accessible, relatable so that it expanded the movement and also complemented the other things that were happening.”
