Years ago, Biddu and Beit Surik villages were in the focus of the struggle against the separation fence in which the AAtW and other Israeli activist joined them. The struggle gained a change of the route that diminished somewhat the loss of lands, and rights of passage to the lands on the other side of the separation fence.
During the following years there were few joint activities we were invited and participated in.
AAtW activist participated previous Saturday in a meeting in Biddu, concerning the movement restrictions on farmers from getting to their land beyond the fence, in Biddu and Beit Surik. We were asked to contact potential supporters from the neighbor Israeli places who aided in the past the struggle against the separation fence: Mevaseret and Har-Adar.
