Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle monthly convergence starting this Saturday in Nabi Saleh*The joint struggle of the anarchists against the wall with popular comities of the villages which persist in weekly struggles was promoted first time when a joint comity was organized and sporadic joint actions were organized by it. This month another promotion was done and a monthly convergence of all the activists involved - this time in Nabi Saleh was done. This week, the intensifying of the Israeli transfer efforts of Palestinians and the struggle against it was focused this week on the Praver plan to transfer in one step 40,000 Bedouins within the 1948 border. There were demonstration in various location in Israel picking in the more than thousands participant in Hura at the Bedouin region. The social struggle within israel which was al along the last two years in very low intensity seems to collect some momentum.
Palestinians, international and Israeli activists demonstrated in Bil'in near the separation wall. The soldiers tried to prevent us from approaching the gate in the wall but part of us succeeded to pass them. There they threatened us and used tear gas to make us go away but we persisted there for long minutes till they forced us to gradually move away. After an hour the end of the demo was declared by the organizers and the unofficial confrontation between the shabab and the soldiers continued for nearly two additional hours.

"Dear friends every Friday is the worse am so sorry: This Friday the Israeli army put check point in the entrance of the village and announce it closed military area and didn’t allow the media and ambulances and internationals from entering kufr Qaddum.
Our march began at 12pm but the army didn’t allow us to reach the usual place and began to shoot tear gas canisters towards us directly. Bashar shtaiwi 43 was injured in his stomach and Naser Braham 43 in his arm, in addition to tens of who suffocated by tear gas.
The clashes were very hot and strong because the army attack the village and the clashes happened between houses. The army targeted my house and damaged the glasses of the windows and attached another house in the same way. Hundreds of tear gas canisters, sound bombs and rubber coated metal bullets were shot during our march today.

It started with speeches includin in memory of Nelson Mandela. A tribute to Nelson Mandela in Nabi Saleh. "We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians".
After the speeches, the Palestinians, Israeli and international solidarity activists, marched down the road to the spot where Tamimi was shot, where they stopped and spelled out his name with stones. The procession continued to face the IOF soldiers near the checkpoint, and from there, to the valley across from the confiscated al-Qaws spring. IOF responded with barrages of tear gas, rubber-coated steel bullets and stun grenades. No major injuries reported.

Don’t say we didn’t know #391
A midnight ago IDF put new road block at the entrance to the village.
’Izbet a-Tabib is a Palestinian village, east of Qalqilia, mostly inhabited by 1948 refugees from Dubsur (next to Ra’anana). Thirty three of its homes have received demolition orders. Two have already been demolished. A few months ago, the school received a demolition order as well. So the residents erected a protest tent near the school.
On Sunday, 24th November, 2013, the IDF put a road block at the entrance to the village for an hour and a half. Afterwards, some soldiers raided the village a few times. In one of the raids, they carried out an aggressive search of the protest tent. After midnight, a small force entered the village and threw tear gas grenades around the village.
It should be mentioned that the village activism is strictly nonviolent, so there’s no need for the military to employ many soldiers in their raids, which have included arrests.
