On March 13, 2009, Tristan Anderson of Oakland, California was shot in the head by Israeli forces in the Palestinian village of Ni’lin. After participating with the villagers in a nonviolent demonstration against the confiscation of their land, Tristan was taking pictures of Israeli soldiers and police attacking the demonstrators. A high velocity long-range tear gas canister was illegally used at short range, crushing his forehead. Israeli forces twice delayed his ambulance to a hospital where he is fighting for his life.
