Women from Deir Ballut Peace Camp plant trees with Munira's husband Hanni and their children, on the one small scrap of land that remains of their once far-reaching olive groves and greenhouses. Their dunums of fertile land have now been replaced by a 25-food concrete wall separating them from not only their land, but their villager, their community, and the rest of Palestine as well. The family plans to continue resisting Israeli military annexation of their house as long as they can. Planting baby olive trees in their yard is a symbol for peace, and also for the future, since olive trees take about 25 years to mature into normal fruit-bearing trees.
