On 1st of May there was another demonstration in Bil'in... does any one know the count? At the end of the day it it summed: lot of tear gas, rubber bullets, shock grenades, 12 wounded by rubber coated metal bullets, and a seriously wounded person rushed to hospital after a tear gas canister was shot to his head. Just as it was done there three weeks ago to another demonstrator*.
About 100 demonstrators could not hinder the army showering of the village with huge amounts of tear gas and rubber bullets after they failed to obtain the decree of "closed military zone" needed to remove us from the vicinity of the work site of the apartheid wall.
For sure we were in some distance of the working machinery, but who care. At the end of the day they declared curfew on the village for a while, you know, just to finish the day with the taste of more....
The two people arrested at the Thursday** demonstration are still detained at the Ofer military compound and wait to be court-martialed. All those who were in that demo is invited to help in their release.
