Palestine-Israel, the joint struggle persist

The joint struggle in Bil'in have never stopped for the last seven years and eight months. It inspired the persistent struggles in Ni'ilin, Ma'asara, Beit Ummar, Nabi Saleh, Qaddum, and Sheikh Jarrah. Activists of the persistent locals inspired and helped the struggles in additional communities. It was "upgraded" when the higher level comity of the struggling local communities was organized. In addition to support of the local struggles it was also expressed in joint actions like this of the previous week at the 443 high way to Jerusalem which pass through the occupied west bank of Palestine and this week at the Beniamin compound against the settler colonialist Rami levi supermarket. This week end the activities were minimal because of the Eid Al Adha holiday, but not canceled.

Friday, Oct. 26, 2012. On the first day of the Eid Al Adha Bil'in continues to demonstrate against the wall and settlements. About 15 Israelis of the anarchists against the wall joined about 20 Bil'iners in the weekly demonstration. As usual, after initial convergence at the near by Abu Lamun groove we marched to the separation wall with the usual chants. Not long after the more daring participants entered between the barbed wire spools and the wall the Israeli state forces started to attack us with tear gas and sound grenades and added the spray of stinking water.
As the wind was most of the time friendly, the state forces succeeded only to prevent the hanging of the Palestinian flag on the wall.
The Shabab who improved their stone throwing capabilities scored lot of direct hits on the plastic shields of the soldiers located on a ramp beyond the wall, who were monitoring us and directing the the spray machine and tear gas shooters harassing us.
