The Beehive Project
As a result of Israel’s military occupation and program of colonization, Um al-Khair, like other Palestinian communities, has been impacted by home demolitions and land confiscation. These mechanisms of violence, coupled restrictions of movement in these remote geographical areas causes almost insurmountable monetary damages. While strategies of political change that focus on overturning unjust laws will ultimately lead to liberation and peace, it is also paramount that we construct parallel programs to help at-risk communities endure while resisting injustices. The bee hives in Um al-Khair work on the level of financial support to a community under heavy pressure by both the Israeli state and the settler community to be evicted.
Here is an opportunity to directly support in a tangible way the community of Um al-Khair by buying some of their cultivated honey.
