Palestine-Israel, The nearing of the September UN show down and the Israeli social justice struggle

The joint struggle in the occupied west bank continue on the back ground of the wide spread social justice struggle in Israel. The "Olive Revolution" was expressed mainly in Friday demonstration in Qalandiya. The anarchists against the wall and village activists of Ni'ilin, Bil'in, Nabi Saleh converged in Qalandiya instead of the usual local actions. In spite of it the Bil'in Friday demo was not canceled. The other struggles in South of Hebron Hills and the Saturday actions in Walaja and Beit Ummar were not missed. The ferment and struggle against settler project in eastern Jerusalem occupied Silwan continue too. The social justice struggle in Israel include also the Palestinian citizens of the "mixed" towns and the Palestinian ones.

Beit Ummar


This week, the Bil'in demonstration was in question because of the demo in Kalandiya, but never the less people insisted and 12 Israelis came to the village. A small demo was composed with village activists who had not travel to Qalandiya. We marched chanting to the new separation wall.
Then few kids decided to practice their long distance aim and threw snots on the Israeli state force hiding behind the wall. In return, the soldiers decided to practice shooting gas at the demonstrators sitting peacefully way behind under the oak trees, and soon after everyone returned to the village.

Al Walaja

Saturday 27-08-2011

"Yesterday for 3 hours, we had a standoff with Israeli soldiers who tried to
prevent us from demonstrating. This demonstration on Saturday was the first
after the Israeli court ruling legitimizes the theft of Al-Walaja land. The
soldiers tried to stop the demonstrators with an outdated military order in
Hebrew dated August 26, 2011. After this act of deceit was caught, the
soldiers quickly produced a new military order but it too was no good
carrying a date of August 28, 2011, a day after the demonstration. The
Israeli apartheid soldiers tried to prevent us but we got close to the
illegal colony of Har Gilo. Four Israeli human rights advocates and one
Palestinian who were merely expressing opinions were abducted."

South of Hebron Hills

This week we will accompany Palestinians farmers and shepherds to their lands in several locations in South Hebron hills. Harassment of Palestinian farmers and shepherds in the area by both settlers and the army continues.

This coming Saturday, August 27, we need as many activists as possible to accompany them and stand up for their rights. There is a direct link between the number of activists who come to accompany the farmers and their ability to harvest and work their lands.

Please be sure to bring an ID/passport, hat and water and don t forget to dress modestly (no shorts or sleeveless shirts) despite the heat.
