Tristan Anderson was critically injured Friday March 13 in village of Ni’lin, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah, after Israeli forces shot him in the head with a tear-gas canister. US-funded Israeli military forces attacked a demonstration against the construction of the annexation wall through the village of Ni’lin’s, encroaching on the land, livelihood and dignity of the local residents. Another resident from Ni’lin was shot in the leg with live ammunition. Israeli military continued to fire teargas directly at clearly marked paramedics as the wounded. The ambulance was detained outside the village by the IDF, but finally allowed to pass and tend to Tristan.

In 2004, the International Court of Justice found all parts of the wall being built on Palestinian land illegal and that these portions should be removed. Last month Israeli bulldozers uprooted the villages olive trees and militarily invaded the village. Four Ni’lin residents have been killed during demonstrations against the confiscation of their land, including ten year-old Ahmed Mousa.

Monday is also the 6th anniversary of the death of Rachel Corrie. Tristan is a well-loved Bay Area community member, independent journalist and longtime frontline human rights, global justice/anti-capitalist, antiwar and environmental activist.
