Riveting eyewitness accounts of everyday life under occupation in Palestine form the core of this collection of essays. From confrontations in olive groves to the siege of Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity, these accounts give incontrovertible evidence of the power of solidarity in the face of settler violence and state terror.

Two stories are intertwined in this book: that of Palestinians-calling the world's citizens to join them in nonviolent resistance to the Israeli Occupation-and that of people like Rachel Corrie who have responded by putting their lives on the line. This is the first book to give the inside story of the unprecedented International Solidarity Movement.

Jews and Arabs, North Americans, Europeans, Israelis, and activists worldwide are bringing the world's attention to the brutality of the Occupation, and calling into question the Occupation itself. These are harrowing and poignant accounts from people committed to justice, dedicated to nonviolence, and longing for peace.
