Fairtrade farmer and community leader Bassema Barahmeh, along with Canaan Fair Trade's marketing assistant Lamis Zamzam, were denied visas for business travel to the UK for Fairtrade Fortnight just 2 days before they were due to leave. We asked them to record a few short interviews so that their British and Irish customers could hear more about them and their lives.
كجزء من فعالياتنا لدعم #موسم_الزيتون الفلسطيني، شاركنا أصحاب أراضي منطقة ال "كريميزان" في بيت لحم بقطف الزيتون والتواجد معهم في هذا الموسم المهم، كجزء من دعمنا لحقهم في زراعة ارضهم والحفاظ على موروثهم الثقافي، ورفضنا لأي نشاط يهدد هذا الحق.
هذه السنة، قمنا بدعم أكثر من 43 تجمع محلي وأكثر من 600 مزارع فلسطيني بالتعاون مع هيئة مقاومة الجدار والإستيطان
As part of our activities to support the #Palestinian #OliveHarvest, we joined the owners of the lands in the Cremisan Valley near Bethlehem and helped them with harvesting their trees in this important season. This comes as part of our support to Palestinians to maintain their existing and long-established rights to farm their lands and oppose activities which threaten the excercise of these rights.
This year we supported more than 43 local communities and more than 600 Palestinian farmers. #RightToHarvest
Lamb cooked using fresh Palestinian #oliveoil is almost ready for tonight's popup supper.
