On Tuesday the 23rd of September 2008 approximately 50 Palestinians, Israelis and international solidarity activists marched in protest towards the construction site of the annexation barrier being built on the farmland of the west bank village of Ni’lin
Border police fired teargas rubber coated steel bullets and sound bombs at the protesters to prevent them from approaching the fence construction site.
Although this time the protesters did not managed to reach the construction site due to unrelenting aggression by the Israeli military, they did prevent the army from entering the village by building a make shift road blocks out of rocks on one of the main access roads.
A number of people were treated for the affects of tear gas.
The regular demonstrations against the apartheid wall will continue in Ni'lin, as the barrier when finished will annex over 25% of the village’s agricultural land.
