The People and The Olive
May 12, 2013
Check out the trailer for The People and The Olive. This documentary tells the story of a group of people who decided to run across the West Bank in order to shed light on the plight of Palestinian olive growers. Under Israeli occupation, over 2 million olive trees have been destroyed, which has decimated the livelihood of many olive farmers in this region. Many of the farmers in the film are a part of the Palestinian Fair Trade Association, which sells its olives to Canaan Fair Trade, my wonderful olive oil vendor. I hope you enjoy the film as much as I did. If you watch it, you’ll meet Meryl, who is my wonderfully awesome Canaan Fair Trade rep.
