Join ICAHD’s 2012 Summer Rebuilding Camp

Since 2003 the Israeli Committee Against Home Demolitions (ICAHD), a US Campaign coalition member group, has made it possible for internationals and Israelis to join together with Palestinians in Anata, East Jerusalem, to resist the Occupation and rebuild the demolished homes of Palestinian families.

In the summer of 2012, ICAHD will once again rebuild during their two-week Summer Rebuilding Camp July 1-16. "Creating Alternative Facts on the Ground" invites you to participate in the incredible opportunity to learn first-hand about life under occupation. Working with local Palestinian construction workers and community members, alongside Israelis, camp participants rebuild an entire house in two weeks.

The summer program includes presentations from activists who are engaged in the struggle to resist the occupation in nonviolent, creative and constructive ways, as well as field trips to the West Bank, Lod, Jerusalem and the Negev to personally witness the methods used by the Israeli authorities to limit available land and resources for use by any future Palestinian state.
