We are EAPPI UK & Ireland. We share the eyewitness stories of Palestinians and Israelis and advocate for justice, equality and an end to the military occupation of Palestine.
More than 20 countries around the world send EAs to Palestine and Israel. While living in the the region, EAs meet local communities and witness life under occupation. EAs provide a protective presence, monitor human rights violations and support Palestinian and Israeli peace groups. On their return home, EAs share their eyewitness stories and use their experience to raise awareness and advocate for an end to the military occupation of Palestine.

EA placement regions
EAs in East Jerusalem accompany Palestinian communities facing issues such as forced eviction, home demolitions and military and settler violence and harassment. They accompany Christian and Muslim communities as they access their places of worship.
EAs in the Jordan Valley accompany traditional herding communities who face violence and harassment from the military and settlers, as well as an ever present risk of permanent displacement and the takeover of their agricultural land and water resources.
EAs in the Northern West Bank accompany vulnerable communities trapped in the ‘seam zone’ who face restrictions accessing their land, livelihood and other resources due to the Israeli separation barrier.
EAs in the Southern West Bank accompany Palestinians who face restrictions trying to cross Israeli military checkpoints for school, work or worship. They accompany Bedouin communities and agricultural workers facing violence and harassment from the military and settlers.
