Ayed Morrar and Jonathan Pollak are friends and among the
major figures in the Palestinian led, Israeli-supported nonviolent
struggle against Israel’s military occupation. Largely unreported
by the media, thousands of Palestinians and hundreds of Israelis
are waging a major grassroots nonviolent campaign of resistance
to the construction of Israel’s Wall. Palestinian farmers, workers,
mothers, and students, together with Israeli and international
volunteers, are braving teargas, beatings, bullets, arrest, and even
death to block the construction of the Wall with their bodies. Ruled
illegal by the International Court of Justice in 2004, the Wall
appropriates Palestinian land and destroys villages for more
Israeli settlements.

In a victory for nonviolence, Ayed led his community of Budrus
in a peaceful campaign of 50 protest marches to stop the
construction of the Wall on Budrus’ land. Jonathan has participated
in over 200 West Bank protests and has helped to mobilize
hundreds of Israelis to join Palestinians in resisting the Wall.
Both Ayed and Jonathan have been imprisoned for their
prominent roles in the nonviolent movement.
