The oil is imported from farmers worse hit by the current political crisis in Palestine.
The project needs help from solidarty groups & individuals in order to meet the first 5000 bottle order target.
The agricultural economy, which is one of the major arteries of the Palestinian economy, has been significantly sabotaged as part of the Occupation.
65% of Palestinian families live in rural areas and are connected to agriculture in some form.
The Israeli government is working on destroying rural livelihoods through the confiscation of land, uprooting of trees, controlling of water sources, denying access to land and the obstruction of marketing, all of which is escalating with the building of the apartheid wall.
www.Zaytoun.co.uk attempts to seek a practical means of assisting the Palestinian People and would appreciate any help in raising the profile of the project.
