Stop the Demolition of Nassar Family Farm/Tent of Nations Buildings
The Nassar Family Farm/Tent of Nations Project has a long history of modeling peaceful co-existence with its neighbors through teaching courses and providing workshops and conferences for women and youth. It also provides opportunities for internationals, Israelis and Palestinians to unite in solidarity around a common dream of a just peace. The Project has always provided a safe haven for those who are committed to justice, and we want it to continue to do so. Sign PetitionSign Petition
All of this is in jeopardy because of actions taken by Israeli authorities on Thursday afternoon, when two officers from the Israeli Civil Administration, guarded by Israeli soldiers, came to the farm and gave the family nine demolition orders for structures built without a permit from the Israeli Military Authority during the last two years.
The demolition orders are for tents, animal shelters, metal roofs on both old houses, the restroom shelters, a water cistern, a one-room trailer and two underground renovated cave structures. While one officer wrote the demolition orders, the other photographed the structures. Israeli soldiers accompanied them and pointed their guns on the family and volunteers.
The Nassar family has only three days to file objections to those orders which is more difficult because Friday and Saturday are holidays for the Israelis.
