First, report of L.P. from the site: "The Israeli terror organizations attack Bil'in. One seriously injured after he was pushed from a cliff, and 7 are less seriously wounded in today demonstration.

Demonstration with the people of Bil'in against the settlements and the fence that are being built on their lands

The coming Wednesday. The Passover weekdays. We will join the people of the village Bil'in near Ramalla, for a nonviolent demonstration of protest against the separation fence and the settlement who annex more than half the lands of the village (about 2,300 Dunams - 575 acres)

Even these days, intensive building works are done, in the area between the route of the fence, to the green line at the West - as part of the expanding of the settlements Kiryat Sefer, Eastern Matityahu, and the town Modi'in Elit. together with the inhabitants of Bil'in - men and women, we will protest loudly against the expanding of the settlement, the building the fence, and the jeopardizing the option for life together. We will also plant olive trees along the route of the fence.

In Bil'in about 1500 working people - most of them earned their living from work in Israel. These days, the village economy is based more on agriculture, and the unemployment rate is very high. Since the high court of justice dismissed the complain of the inhabitants of Bil'in against the new route of the fence which was ratified by the government, the village started a nonviolent struggle against the fence. Nearly daily, the people of Bil'in are marching towards the route of the fence trying to stop the work of the bulldozers, which are uprooting the olive trees and separating between them and their lands.

Like in the neighboring village Budrus, so in Bil'in, the army try to suppress violently the popular struggle of the village. Among other atrocities, the soldiers invade the village days and nights, shooting rubber coated bullets, entering hoses, detain and hit people.... A month ago, the border police soldiers set a fire in one of the hoses by throwing into it a shock grenade. Till this day, in the village Bil'in here are already tens of injured from shooting of rubber coated bullets, shock grandees hits, tear gas and physical violence of soldiers.

For Wednesday the 27th of April, the people of Bil'in are inviting whoever still believe in the values of justice, equality and solidarity, to join them and create together a real alternative to the policy of annexation and dispossession of the Israeli government.
