The Olive Tree is the ancient living symbol of Palestinian connection to the land. The trees themselves are precious to Palestinian families everywhere. At the time of the harvest, Palestinians come out throughout the land to pick, collect, process and sell olives. That this is contested, and the olive-pickers threatened by Israeli settlers and the army, calls on all supporters of freedom to stand with those who protect the harvest and carry out this continuity on the land.
That's why Taghyeer activists and in support of various villages initiates campaigns every year to harvest olives. Taghyeer has been active in communities such as 'Azmut, Beit Fureek, Beit Jala, Al Makhrour, and Yatta. The olive harvest poses not only an opportunity to support the farmers, but moreover brings our activists together with the local communities.
