Union of Agricultural Work Committees (UAWC)

Union of Agricultural Work Committees (UAWC) was founded in 1986, when the Israeli occupation was direct and Palestine had no independent authority. UAWC fights for Palestinian farmers’ rights and the rights of the Palestinian population under occupation where land and water resources have been confiscated. The organization works both to influence opinion and to mobilize committees in local communities to fight for Palestinian farmers’ rights, and runs projects to make the best possible use of land and to utilize land in areas vulnerable to confiscation.
