International Activists Support Olive Harvest in Surif

2 November 2011

This week PSP, along with many international volunteers, joined farmers from Surif in the olive harvest.

The olive harvest is a busy season and many hands are required to do the job. Several traditions and rituals are related to the olive harvest, and it is also an important social event. The internationals were glad to help and enjoyed picking the olives in beautiful surroundings, but their presence is not only for fun. International presence and attention can be of great importance because of the continual harassment the farmers face from settlers. Report here
