International Human Rights Volunteers Needed in Palestine

The International Women�s Peace Service (IWPS) is a team of
international female human-rights volunteers in Palestine who provide
accompaniment to Palestinian civilians (including farmers during the
annual olive harvest), document and non-violently intervene in
human-rights abuses and support acts of non-violent resistance to end the
Israeli military occupation and construction of the barrier throughout the
West Bank.

work outside of Palestine.

Applicants should be able to commit to further terms in Palestine of one
