Palestine-Israel, the joint struggle which enhance the B.D.S. suffer lately more punishments then ever.
The non armed joint actions - mainly few Friday demos, do not cause the Israeli armed forces much load. However, the focusing of the media on these, and more so the international activist participating in them who enhance the international struggle when they return home, really worry the Israeli authorities. Their borders screening which succeed to prevent the entry of activists is not much effective. The Israeli ruling elite is not in panic yet, but lately they worry a lot. The president of Israel warn that the development of the B.D.S. must cause a real concern. The threat of the expulsion from the FIFA cause Israel to make concession to prevent the voting and even agreed to a special monitoring comity. The subject of the B.D.S. is more and more in the media and many of the speaker admit their fear from its intensifying.
Friday 22-5-15 - the persistence struggle continue. 11 Israeli of the anarchists against the wall and similar number of international supporters joined the local villagers. As usual, we started to march from the village towards the separation wall. As usual the last few months the Israeli armed forces were posited near Baasem (Fil) memorial where was the gate in the already dismantled separation fence. As usual lately, when we advanced a bit, the state force started to flood us with tear gas.
As the wind was not friendly - a western one, it was hard to evade it so we started to retreat. The state force border police was not satisfied with our slaw retreat so they advanced while shooting.
On their way they passed an old Israeli who was not fast enough. Mocking them he clapped his hands and in retaliation they threw at him two sound grenade.
After a while, the border police retreated a bit and the tear gas was blown away, so we did started a second march which was shot the same as the previous one.
We regrouped again to the fringe of the village waiting few minutes before the state force left the area and we declared another small victory.
Friday 29.5.15 Our weekly demonstration against Israel's brutal occupation against Palestine today was once again met with excessive use of tear gas which caused fires around homes in the village.
Residents of Nabi Saleh marched alongside solidarity activists in defiance of the Israeli army. As every Friday, demonstrators protest the ongoing land confiscation and Israeli settlement project.
