Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle interwoven with the expectation for the UN show down

Though Israel is in panic, and many Palestinians are with mixed feelings - the joint struggle against the separation fence, occupation, and the suppression of the Israeli Palestinian continue. The struggle against the new wave of attack on the Bedouins - both within Israel and the occupied west bank continue. So is the struggle against the terror of the colonialist settlers against the Palestinian neighbors. And of course the struggle against the separation fence already built and in building. Special focus is in fierce struggle in occupied east Jerusalem - mainly Silwan and Sheikh Jarah. The main locations are: Arakib, Beit Ummar, Bil'in, Kufur Qaddom, Ma’sara, Nabi Saleh, Sheikh Jarah, Silwan, Social Struggle, South of Hebron Hills. The social struggle against the neo-liberalism continue in the various locations in both Jewish and Palestinian communities.

Evicting the Bedouin - Israel/Palestine

Beit Ummar

4 nice Jewish girls [with the anarchists against the wall] joined about 10 internationals and 20 Palestinian residents of Beit Umar in what was probably the shortest demonstration in the village history. 2 minutes and 3 slogans later, the general crowd was dispersed via extremely vindictive military use of pepper spray, aimed straight to the eyes of the peaceful protesters. 3 international activists were arrested and several others, both Palestinians and Israelis, were in need of medical care. Todays lesson, boys and girls: DO NOT WASH pepper spray with water. It burns like shit.

Bil'in demonstration 09-09-2011

About 20 Israelis of the anarchists against the wall and a dozen international activists joined the local village activists and a political party delegation from Ramalla in this Friday demonstration.
"The march began after Friday prayers from the center of the village and headed to the land that was restored and the nature reserve Abu Limon. Participants raised Palestinian flags and banners proclaiming 'Palestinian state 194' and 'the Palestine key to peace' as well as banners painted with the image of the captive leader Marwan Barghouti. They chanted the national calls for the end of the occupation, destruction of the apartheid wall, and steadfastness with the principles of Palestine. Upon the arrival of participants to the Abu Limon reserve, they walked along the concrete wall, set fire to tires, and tried to storm the fence adjacent to the wall. They addressed the settlers in the settlement of Matityahu East through loudspeakers, telling them to leave and leave the Palestinian territories to the Palestinians. During these actions the occupation forces stationed behind the concrete wall fired tear gas, live ammunition, and rubber bullets towards the participants. This led to the asphyxiation of dozens of participants and private network television crews present in the area".

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, September 10, 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.
