April 2010

Dear friends,

We are now 'Green Olive Tours'.
After consulting with clients and colleagues the new name was selected. However the new website address, www.greenolivetours.com, still brings you to the toursinenglish.com website. Over the coming months a new website will be built for Green Olive Tours.
Our ongoing relationship with the village of Beit Ummar has resulted in our first formal summer camp. Please forward the details to your friends and place links to the camp information page on your blogs and websites. Contact me if you are interested in placing a camp banner on your site. We hope to see many of you here this summer. Details below.
All the best,

Fred Schlomka, Director


2010 Beit Ummar Summer Camp
19th July - 1st August

Beit Ummar village
This two-week camp experience is situated in the Palestinian village of Beit Ummar and is a partnership project between the Palestine Solidarity Project (PSP) and Green Olive Tours.

The Camp is hosted by Mousa Abu-Maria, his wife Bekka, founders of PSP, and Green Olive Tours Director Fred Schlomka.
Beit Ummar is home to the PSP, a movement that conducts non-violent resistance activities against the settlements and the Occupation. The organization also manages social and economic development programs in the village.
The community of Beit Ummar is nestled in the hills south of Bethlehem and surrounded by a pastoral environment of olive groves and fields.

The villagers have lost a great deal of land to the surrounding Israeli settlements, and the local economy is devastated due to the restrictions of the Occupation.

Planting olive trees
The camp is designed to enable international visitors to express solidarity with the villagers, and provide tangible assistance through a variety of productive activities within the community.  
In addition there will be briefings, meeting with families, tours to several cities the West Bank, and opportunities to participate in a non-violent civic action (optional) against the Occupation.
Many of the evenings will include featured Palestinian and Israeli speakers and discussion. Wireless internet is available at the PSP office.
Community work will include building a greenhouse, repairing olive grove terraces, fruit picking, activities with youth, and tutoring in English. There is also a woman's embroidery project which is available for participation by women only. . . . . . more information & itinerary
