“Having worked closely with our dedicated and courageous Palestinian partners, my work to end the occupation is now grounded in the hearts, hands, and lands I came to know on this trip. This trip will sustain my work in the U.S. to continue building a movement to end the American Jewish establishment’s support for the occupation.”

“The kids got the feeling that there are people who come to support them, to give them confidence and security, to say we are with you and we won’t accept that your houses will be taken or your lives will be threatened. We stand with you.”

“Three or four years ago, when people came to demolish, we had no photos or videos. Now, if the bulldozers come, we have 10 people with cameras and within minutes, we have people all over the world watching. We know that people are with us…When you tell us that CJNV is returning next year, it makes me very happy because it shows you trust me. I don’t need people to come for just one year, we want a relationship that continues.”

“We were doing it all together, the activists joined all together and brought their own expertise, they talked about their own women’s groups…This is how we have to work, bringing groups together so that all people feel that special kind of hope and trust that allows them to overcome violence.”

“It was not a show – cleaning a field that wasn’t clean for 20 years, carrying in huge amounts of materials, challenging the soldiers, opening the area right beneath Baruch Marzel’s house. The family can walk now, with trash and barbed wire removed. The family felt it, they knew it wasn’t photo ops.”
