Running the Blockade and Harvesting the Olives

Vancouverites Karen DeVito and John "Max" Soos last month experienced two very different aspects of  Israel's control over Palestine.

Karen was one of three Canadian delegates who sailed with Freedom Waves. She was among the 27 people aboard The Canadian Tahrir and the Irish Saoirse, who were forcefully taken from international waters to an Israeli prison while attempting to break the blockade of Gaza.

John was a volunteer harvesting olives in the West Bank and observed first hand the abusive treatment of Palestinians by the Israeli military. As a mental health care professional he heard from colleagues about the toll this abuse takes on ordinary Palestinians, including children.
