The Freedom Summer: 2002 campaign is a project by the International Solidarity Movement to stage non-violent demonstration in Palestine for 54 days to promote freedom and justice -- one day for each year that Palestinians have lived under occupation.
International civilian volunteers are to travel to Palestine and be hosted by local families. They will work with local leadership to protest against occupation forces. They will also document and report on the actions of the Israeli occupation forces (home demolitions, arrests, etc.). At the local level, Palestinians will organize, train and coordinate a summer program of activities and actions to involve all elements of Palestinian society.
Like the Civil Rights Movement in the United States, India's National Liberation Movement and the Anti-Apartheid Movement in South Africa, Freedom Summer will utilize nonviolent direct action strategies and tactics to overcome oppression.
