The International Solidarity Movement (ISM)
The ISM is a Palestinian-led movement of Palestinian and International
activists working to raise awareness of the struggle for Palestinian freedom and an end to Israeli occupation. The ISM utilizes nonviolent,
direct-action methods of resistance to confront and challenge illegal Israeli occupation forces and policies.
Due to the lack of respect for Palestinian human rights and human life by the Israeli government and occupation forces, an international presence is needed to support Palestinian nonviolent resistance. Palestinian activists
trying to work or protest alone face harsh punishment from Israeli forces.
This has included beatings, long-term arrests, serious injury and even death. International activists are thus a resource for Palestinians, both in terms of their presence and as witnesses to the daily humiliation and injustice of the Israeli occupation.
