Palestinian farmers under the Occupation

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

How do you make a living as a farmer when your land and water has been stolen from you by the Israeli invaders? The answer is that you don’t. You join the hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in refugee camps in Jordan, or you work for a pittance in the illegal Israeli settlements spreading like a cancer over the once fertile land of Palestine.

When there is nowhere left to go

Thursday, October 25th, 2007


Life in Upper Fasayil is precarious. It is in the Jordan Valley that comprises 30% of the Palestinian West Bank. Since 1967 the local community have gone from being a thriving farming community to a group of families squeezed into a villages with mud roads, single story houses, and animal pens. All the farming land around their village has been stolen from them by Israeli settlers, now used to produce crops for profit. They are prohibited from building any new buildings, or from repairing their existing homes. (more…)

Farmers in Tubas and the Jordan Valley

Sunday, April 15th, 2007

As our delegation is coming to an end, I was asked to write something about the two farmers’ cooperatives that we have visited in the Tubas region. My mission of finding out more about the agricultural situation in Palestine has largely failed because of a lack of time, but hopefully I can do more research in the future.
