Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle on the background of the world turmoil.
For already more than two years the rebellion against the sharp intensifying of the global neo-liberalism is fermenting. The struggle against the local processes is overcoming the efforts of the local elite to use intensifying conflicts with the Palestinians to "soften the resistance". The more dramatic wave of two years ago passed but not without a permanent ferment that just wait for a local or international trigger. There are very few who persisted in the Israeli anarchists against the wall initiative all the 10 years of struggle, but new activists take the place of those who lost the energy and will to continue in the same activity level - or just left the country. The weekly persistent demos in Bil'in, Ma'asara, Ni'ilin, Nabi Saleh, Qaddum, and Sheikh Jarah hold the flag high. This week uprising in Turkey is only the the freshest one of the new mode.

Friday 31/05/2013. Activist report around 70 teargas canisters have been shot by Israeli occupation forces at homes and civilians before the demonstration has even started. IOF have also blocked main road to Nabi Saleh in an attempt to prevent solidarity activists entering the village.
Demonstrators from the Ramallah-district village of Nabi Saleh, joined by Israeli and international activists, attempted to march towards 'Ayn al-Qaws, a spring expropriated by the nearby settlement of Halamish. Even before the demonstration started, IOF soldiers already advanced, invaded the village and randomly fired tear gas canisters. During the demonstration, the IOF attacked the marchers with massive barrages of tear gas canisters, rubber bullets and putrid skunk water even though not even one stone was hurled. A Palestinian youth was injured from rubber-coated steel bullets and dozens suffocated from tear gas.
