Thu Jan 20, Mughair: Tu Bishvat Tree Planting
RHR has been working for over a year to get the army to fulfill its obligations under our 2006 High Court ruling to protect Palestinian trees from vandals who cut them down in the middle of the night. the military claims it `cannot place a soldier near every tree`, and in practice does not prioritize this. This year has seen an escalation of settler vandalism. In particular, the residents of Mughair in northern West Bank had many olive trees uprooted or poisoned with kerosene, probably by settlers from nearby Adei Ad.

Please join us on Thursday, Tu BiShvat, January 20th, on a tree planting campaign in Mughair.

10:00-11:30 Tree Planting
11:30-12:30 Media tour of the damaged orchards
12:30-1:30 Tour (by special prior arrangement) of additional West Bank areas where orchards have been attacked.

* Jerusalem, the Pa`amon Garden at 9:00
* Kessem Junction (north Rosh Ha`Ain) Train Station east of Tel Aviv, also 9:00.
