Add comment on:Apartheid Wall Protest in Bil'in, West Bank, Palestine, 12/17/10: photos & video
On December 17th, 2010, Palestinians, Israelis, and internationals together marched out of the village of Bil'in in the West Bank to protest the Israeli apartheid wall. This weekly demonstration has occurred since 2005. Pictured below is an Israeli prison we passed on the drive to Bil'in. It is filled with hundreds of Palestinian political prisoners. The Israeli Defense Force has the power to declare military zones anywhere at will and arrest "violators" of these zones. The military can hold Palestinians for years with no charges, or with charges and trials based on secret "evidence". Often it is organizers of political demonstrations such as the weekly protests in Bil'in who are arrested and jailed.
