JAI & ATG Organise An Olive Picking Program In Palestine In October Each Year
The Olive Picking Program is organized each Autumn for 10 days, in coordination with the Alternative Tourism Group (ATG).
This Olive Picking Program aims to provide assistance and a protective civil international presence for Palestinian families to help them overcome the restrictions imposed by the Israeli military occupation and settlers during the olive harvest season.
In addition to their picking activities the participants developed a social, cultural, political, historic and religious understanding of the region, witnessed life under occupation, and shared advocacy ideas and tools.
International participants come from various countries all over the world, namely: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and USA.
The program includes olive picking in villages, beside presentations on various topic related to Palestinian life under occupation, as well as guided tours in Bethlehem, Jerusalem, and Hebron.
