Sat Jul 5 2008 (Updated 07/06/08)Demonstrations in Ni'lin, Bi'lin, and Al-Ma'sra aginst the apartheid wall
Demonstrations against the Apartheid Wall are a daily occurrence in Palestine. In Ni’lin, a Palestinian village in the West Bank, Palestinians, international activists, and Anarchists Against the Wall have been protesting the on going construction of the wall on Ni’lin farm lands. On July 1st, four Caterpillar bulldozers , used to demolish Palestinians houses and farm land, were sabotaged during a demonstration .
Three activists were injured, on July 4th, by Israeli forces in the weekly protest against the wall in Bil’in; west of Ramallah. Dozens of protesters were treated for tear gas inhalation. In Al-Maasara/Um Salamuna four activists were arrested.
On July 5th, the occupying Israeli forces surrounded the Ni'lin village and announced a curfew, to prevent further demonstrations. Shops were shut down, two elderly women who felt sick were prevented from exiting the village, and media reporters were threatened with arrests. The village population, however, defied the curfew and demonstrations against the wall and the occupying forces took place. The demonstrators marched towards the apartheid wall and blocked the settlers-only road that runs by the village. On the same day, another demonstration against the wall happened in Ma’sra, a village south of Bethlehem. Live bullets, sound grenades and tear gas were used by the occupying forces to disperse a popular march that started from the centre of al Ma’sra. Organizers vowed to continue resistance and announced more protests to mark the 4th anniversary of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) decision, which declared the Wall illegal, called for it to be dismantled and those affected to be compensated for the damages.
