All to Burin this Friday! Stand with the Palestinians against settler violence!
Tomorrow, Fri. Feb 4, we are heading to Burin, to go tree planting activity in
support of Palestinian farmers and to take a stand against Jewish terror and
settler violence. This email contains all the information needed to make Friday
safe and effective, so please read it carefully.

What to expect

We plan to arrive in Burin at 9 a.m. and leave Burin at 12:30 p.m.

In the previous activity in Burin, volunteers experienced severe violence from
settlers. Most activities take place safely without any violence or danger, but
there is always a risk of violence during activities in the Occupied Territory.
It is important for you to know that the activity is coordinated with the police
and the army, and we always recommend not going anywhere alone. The commitment
of so many people to stand side by side in the face of settler violence is our
strength and shield. The activity will be led by very experienced activists who
are committed to maintaining your safety.
The activity will not take place in the form of a demonstration, following the
request of the residents of Burin and due to the fear that after the volunteers
leave, the settlers will use violence in retaliation against the Palestinian
residents of Burin, without anyone protecting them or standing by them. The
focus will be on completing the tree planting and making a clear and determined
statement against the ongoing violence.
There is a chance of rain on Friday, please prepare accordingly with coats and

For those interested, on Wednesday evening, at 20:00, there will be a
preparatory Zoom for the activity (in Hebrew). In the Zoom we will talk briefly
about what the activity will look like, we will share some safety tips, and we
will open the stage for you to share thoughts, concerns, ask questions, etc.
