Grassroots Nonviolent Resistance to Israeli Occupation


Ayed Morrar and Jonathan Pollack are friends and among the major figures in the Palestinian-led, Israeli-supported nonviolent struggle against Israel's military occupation. Largely unreported by the media, thousands of Palestinians and hundreds of Israelis are waging a major grassroots nonviolent campaign of resistance to the construciton of Israel's Wall. Palestinian farmers, workers, mothers, and students, together with Israeli and international volunteers, are braving teargas, beatings, bullets, arrest, and even death to block the construction of the Wall with their bodies.

Ruled illegal by the International Court of Justice in 2004, the Wall appropriates Palestinian land and destroys villages to increase and expand Israeli settlements.

In a victory for nonviolence, Ayed led his community of Budrus in a peaceful campaign of 50 protest marches to stop the constructon of the Wall on Budrus' land. Jonathan has participated in over 200 West Bank protests and has helped to mobilize hundres of Israelis to join Palestinians in resisting the Wall. Both Ayed and Jonathan have been imprisoned for their prominent roles in the nonviolent movement.
