Palestine-Israel, Friday noon, Bil'in, the joint struggle against the separation fence and occupation persist 09 Feb 2007

This Friday noon we marched again from the center of the village to the route of the separation fence that is used to robe more than half of the lands of the villagers. As usual, Palestinians from the region, Internationals, and Israelis of the anarchists against the fence initiative. at the last intersection of the village, gendarmes of the border police stood along the road - today they did not try to hide among the houses. After ridiculing them for a while, we continued to march toward the route of the separation fence. When we arrived there, we started the usual low intensity confrontation - mostly verbal, with the soldiers blocking the gate. However, after few minutes, the opponents of the non violent mode of struggle started to throw stones on the soldiers who responded with shock grenades and shooting rubber coated bullets.

As in previous times, the soldiers tried to drive away also the nonviolent demonstrators, but as in the previous weeks, the shock grenades and physical push and drug did not help them a bit. We resisted till they stop trying.

After a while, we decided to end the demo and returned to the village.

As in usual Fridays, the village stone throwing kids who did not come to the route of the fence confronted the gendarmes who came just for that to the village.
