Hebron (Al Khalil) Saturday December 25

Israeli soldiers attacked on Saturday evening a nonviolent protest organized by the Youth Coalition Against Settlements in Hebron, in the southern part of the West Bank. Dozens of Israeli and International peace activists participated in the protest.

Palestinians Israelis and foreign activists hold demonstration against the Israeli settlements expansion and demand to open al-Shuhada street closed by Israeli army, in the West Bank city of Hebron, December 25th. Five protesters were arrested Saturday by Israeli army in the protest in Hebron.

At least four Palestinians and three internationals were wounded after being violently assaulted by the army, and three international activists were detained. The Youth Coalition Against Settlements stated that soldiers attacked local protestors, internationals and reporters who arrived to provide media coverage. The protest, held weekly, is conducted by dozens of locals, Israelis and internationals.

This week’s protest was held at the eastern entrance of the Al Shuhada Street, in the Old City. The street was closed by the army several years ago leading to the closure of dozens of Palestinian stores. Only Jewish settlers are allowed to use the street. The protestors carried Palestinian flags and banners calling for ending all sorts of racial discrimination, and demanded Israel to open the street and to stop the frequent attacks carried out by extremist Israeli soldiers and settlers.


Monday is the two years anniversary for the 2008 assault of Israel on Gaza strip. A demo was called for Monday evening in front of the Israeli war compound in the center of Tel Aviv.

Tomorrow noon, Monday, December 27, a demonstration commemorating two years to the vicious assault on Gaza will be held in Ramallah area. AAtW were invited to participate.
Please contact S.


The yasam special police troopers came Monday 21 Dec. to destroy the tents of the families whose houses were destroyed last week during the peak of the storm.
supposedly one woman threw herself in front of the police car and managed to prevent the tent destruction. (she was not hurt).
To those who are unfamiliar with the case:
60 Israeli Palestinians with kids and elders were left with absolutely nothing in the freezing rain last week after hundreds of armed policemen stormed 7 houses in samech.chet neighborhood in Lod and destroyed them WITHOUT TAKING THE FURNITURE AND VALUABLES OUT.
the only thing those families have now are donated tents to protect from the weather. police will probably return tomorrow again to destroy them too.
there will be a big meeting tonight at the site at 1900 to discuss further action.

Popular Resistance Movement inviting to One Year Celebration of the An Nabi Saleh Demonstration


Nabi Saleh

As been the case in recent weeks in Nabi Saleh , all entrances to the village were closed from the morning by Israeli forces, attempting to prevent Palestinian, Israeli and international participants from attending. During this initial incursion to the village, an Israeli soldier shot from a close range 12 successive bullets into the chest of a Nabi Saleh youth, who stood by. The youth fell to the ground, and required to be taken to a hospital. He was released the day after.

This Friday demonstration in Nabi Saleh began with a group of about 50 people marching through the village to confront face to face the Israeli army, which blocked the protesters from proceeding towards the village's lands and spring. After chanting for a while in front of the soldiers, the army attacked the protesters who had to make a fast under-fire retreat, while stone throwers ward off the army incursion. Until the evening, the Israeli army kept shooting tear gas canisters and rubber-coated steal bullets, inside the village's populated area, forming an unlawful collective punishment repressive measure. Tear gas canisters were shot directly at the protesters, a dangerous conduct which violates even the army's own regulations. Some army soldiers kept hidden and then ambushed the protesters from the back or the side. As a result, many were shot from close range, including people inside their houses.

4 people were arrested during the day. One of the Israeli arrestees, a cameraman, was released from the Halamish police point. A Palestinian 20 year old youth was taken to Ofer military prison. The two remaining Israeli arrestees were taken to the Russian Compound and unlike the Palestinian youth, will be brought to court on Saturday evening.

Popular Resistance Movement invitation:
"We would like to invite you to join the celebration of the one year anniversary of the weekly demonstration held in our village, An Nabi Saleh.

Let's end the occupation together"

The heroic Nebi Salah --- Today two dozen Israelis joined the village people and together we planted olive trees in front of frustrated Israeli troopers who could not shower us with tear gas.

This Saturday Nabi Saleh marked one year anniversary of weekly protests against the creeping annexation of land by the Halamish settlement, the apartheid wall and the Israeli occupation. About 150 residents and supporters of the village marched to the village's lands and planted some 200 trees right before road 465, which a spring and lands of the village are annexed and threatened to be annexed by the settlement even beyond it. The Israeli army spread across the road but kept at bay, preventing the settlers from nearing the works and keeping a close-eye on the workers, so they want cross the road to the other parts of the village's lands. The works ended peacefully and were succeeded by a ceremony in the village, which was attended by many of the village's residents and supporters.

The right to exist the right to fight and sure the right to live free , another day of struggling against the Israeli apartheid wall in the town of Ni'lin west of Ramallah, please leave a comment for the people who struggle write your message to them.

A Chronicle of Political persecution: Fighting the Oppression in Silwan
The weekly demonstration in East Jerusalem will take place in Silwan.

The armed forces announced their intention to employ against Adnan Gheith, a political and community activist and a resident of Silwan the extreme and draconian mean of restricting him from his community, home, family and livelihood for the duration of four months, due to his participation in the democratic protest against the Jewish settlement enterprise in Silwan (see article in Haaretz for further details).

Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) -- A demonstration was held today in Silwan in protest to the Israeli government’s attempts to exile Palestinians from Jerusalem. The demonstration commenced at 2pm, with a large number of both Palestinian and Israeli activists marching from Wadi Hilweh neighborhood to the threatened el-Bustan protest tent. Activists who spoke at the tent denounced the Israeli government’s latest attempts to crack down on Palestinian political activity in Jerusalem, namely the attempt to impose a four-month ban on community leader Adnan Ghaith from the Jerusalem area.

Hundreds of Israelis and Palestinians, Sheikh Jarrah activists, AAtW, and others of the radical Israelis and Silwan residents, gathered in Silwan in East Jerusalem for a demonstration and march against political repression of Silwan activists by Israel.

Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle never extinguish

Just imagine we had such struggles all over the developed world where few scores of anarchist activists in a region keep our agenda in the focus of the public discourse. It is not only the joint struggle against the separation fence or the occupation. Previous Friday part of us been the redNblack Block at human rights day parade in Tel Aviv This weekend we participated in the persistent weekly joint actions in Bil'in, Naby Saleh, Ni'ilin, Maasarah, Shekh Jarrah, and Beit Ummar. Just few hundreds of people of the Israeli radical left who insist not to let "things as usual" cover the on going atrocities.

Beit Ummar

Army Takes Over Civilian House and Attacks Non-Violent Beit Ummar Demonstration
Roughly forty five protesters, including many Israeli and international supporters marched to the agricultural lands of Beit Ummar, demanding access to their land which has been slowly confiscated by the nearby settlement of Karmei Tzur.

Small victory gained as the soldiers retreated after their repeated assaults with tear gas grenade - some in direct fire, failed to disperse the demonstration.

Two Israelis of the AAtW and one international activist were arrested while the rest of the demonstration was attacked with tear gas and sound bombs. All released within hours.
Israel Puterman video at: http://www.youtu


This Friday in Bil'in the wind kept blowing in all directions, blending exceptional quantities of gas into the demonstrators who were still on their way to the wall's gate, spreading the gas throughout the village's olive groves, spreading it as far as the village's western homes, spreading the demonstrators everywhere - all 20 Israelis, 10 or so internationals, dozens of Palestinians and the host of journalists. A few peaceful demonstrators managed to hold on to their stance at the wall's gate even after the shabab who respond to state violence with stones had been gassed away. Maybe they were held together by the pep rally around the recently released Adeeb Abu Rahmah at the mosque where the demonstrators first gathered.

Dozens of Palestinian, Israeli and international demonstrators gathered in the village of Al-Ma'asara in the West Bank for the weekly Friday demonstration against the separation wall and land confiscations due to nearby settlements. The demonstration was completely nonviolent, but nevertheless the Israeli army dispersed it with force, shooting tear gas and sound grenades. One Israeli demonstrator was arrested in an attempt by the army to quell the protest, despite it being a peaceful demonstration.

Nabi Salih

Nabi Saleh resident sustained head injury by unlawful direct tear gas canister; Israeli army delayed ambulance both on the way in and out

December 17, 2010

This Friday Nabi Saleh marked one year anniversary of weekly protests against the creeping annexation of land by the Halamish settlement. As been the case in recent weeks, all entrances to the village were closed by Israeli forces, attempting to prevent Palestinian, Israeli and international participants from attending. This time these army posts were also used to prevent an ambulance evacuate a badly injured resident who suffered an head injury by a tear gas canister direct hit.

The demonstration began with a group of about 40 people marching between the army posts inside the village, towards the village's lands and spring, while Halamish settlers were attending it without army interference. Once the march reached the main road inside the village, Israeli forces attacked it by stun grenades, ordering and pushing back everyone, including journalists. After standing for a while in front of the soldiers the protesters marched back to the village, where the army has already deepened its incursion and clashes erupted. Until the evening, the Israeli army kept shooting tear gas canisters and rubber-coated steal bullets, inside the village's populated area, forming an unlawful collective punishment repressive measure.

Tear gas canisters were shot directly at the protesters, a dangerous conduct which violates even the army's own regulations. One such canister hit a Nabi Saleh resident in the back of the head. The ambulance which was sent was delayed for 10 minutes on the way into the village, and another 5 minutes on the way to the hospital, by the Israeli army. Luckily enough, the injured remained conscience and hospital tests suggested he may be released within 48 hours.

Ni'lin's weekly protest brought together around fifty of the village's residents, with around 15 internationals and Israelis. The protest march reached the wall built on the village's land. protesters chanted slogans, drew graffiti, banged on the closed metal gate demanding to be allowed to get to their land. a few youth threw stones over the wall, and the soldiers fired tear gas canisters. a number of soldiers then crossed the barrier, leading to a swift retreat by protesters. no injuries were recorded.

Palestine-Israel, The winter came a bit late however, the gloom does not stop the joint struggles - just less reports.

The winter arrived with cold and stormy whether for few days. It did not stop the joint struggle but the urge to report was low. Bilin, the flag holding, is the only detailed reported on struggles. ---- Bil'in ---- Israelis: ~50. Internationals ~ 50. Palestinians: hundreds of men, women, politicians ---- Flags: (in decreasing order) Mubadara, Jabha, Fatah, Palestine, Argentina ---- Soldiers: deployed on the road leading from the wall into the village's built area ---- Gas: came before the demonstrators even got near the soldiers ---- Wind: in the demonstrators' faces; small avant-garde held their stance near the soldiers ---- Injuries: gas, gas and more gas ---- Arrests: 1 German + 1 Palestinian (who was threatened with arrest if he didn't leave in one minute; in reaction, said he didn't need a minute, and was willing to be arrested immediately) ---- Releases: Palestinian - at the end of the demo; German - a couple of hours later.

Abdullah, Ashraf: Still in jail - Adeeb released only on Sunday evening.
Human rights: celebrated their day, haven't made it to Palestine.
‎Remembering the First Intifada, International Human Rights Day, and the Imprisonment of Abdallah Abu Rahme. Today, December 10, 2010, Bil'in celebrated International Human Rights Day with a larger than normal demonstration through the village. Hundreds of supporters came from outside Bil'in to support the village's struggle for human rights, to mark the one-year anniversary of Abdallah Abu Rahme's imprisonment, and to commemorate the First Intifada.

The demonstration was immediately fired upon with large amounts of tear gas from soldiers on several sides. The army had entered through the gate and were waiting in advance of the demonstrators. One Palestinian demonstrator was injured from tear gas, dozens suffered tear gas inhalation, and two were arrested – one Palestinian, Abd al-Fattah Burnat and one German citizen. The demonstrators marched with flags from Palestinian movements and sang numerous songs calling for an end to occupation and settlements and Palestinian national unity.

December 12, 2010

Before the first heavy rains hit Israel yesterday, thousands people gathered in central ------- Tel Aviv ------ to mark international Human Rights Day. The occasion brought together various Israeli NGO’s and thousands of concerned citizens in the spirit of presenting a face of Israel that supports human rights and progressive values. Placards were carried through the streets supporting gay rights, woman’s rights, African refugees rights and, also, coexistence between Jews and Arabs. Police lined the streets of the demonstration to ensure the safety of the protesters and keep confrontation with the right wing counter protesters at bay (one has to hand it to the right in Israel, a counter protest to human rights?!). If the Tel Aviv Human Rights Day march wanted to have more authenticity in terms of Palestinian/Israeli coexistence, it should have had more connection with the human rights struggle happening simultaneously in the West Bank.

Only 25 kilometers away from this festive scene, Palestinians were holding their weekly protest against the separation wall and for human rights in the village of
------ Ni’ilin-------. The protest began as usual, with a speech about the wall and the pain that it has caused the community. This was followed by midday prayers and finally a protest march to the wall itself. Among the Palestinians were a handful of Israeli supporters from Tel Aviv.

Once at the wall, protesters banged on the gate with stones and sticks. For a second, the banging sounded like the drummers of ----- Sheikh Jarrah, ------ who engage in 'joy resistance’ by drumming and blowing whistles in their weekly demonstration. The army, on the other side of the wall, spoke on bullhorn informing everyone that the area was a closed military zone and we must leave. It seems that everywhere for the army is a closed military zone and one day, perhaps in the near future, I expect to hear the same bullhorn in Jaffa or Jerusalem proclaiming that the entire land of Israel is a closed military zone. A soldier continued on the bullhorn, saying that they are present to protect the wall. The wall has been built for security reasons yet it requires its own security. Just like the settlements have been said to improve Israeli security but in effect drain security resources.

Unlike the police presence in Tel Aviv, the army in Ni’ilin is present to attack, not defend. It is there to crush the spirit of unarmed resistance in the West Bank. It is there to reinforce that Palestinians are a controlled people living under constant Israeli occupation. As Naomi Chazan began her speech in Tel Aviv (I was following the updates on Twitter while tweeting my own), the army began covering the area of the protest with tear gas. Wave after wave of gas covered the area. Soldiers fired canisters directly at protesters. There was no restraint. Israel’s recognition of International Human Rights Day was starting to take full shape.

The protest ended quickly, as it often does these days in N’ilin, and the five Israelis present drove to Nabi Saleh. There was little discussion about Human Rights Day among the Israelis. They were engaged in a struggle for human rights on the ground and clearly did not have the energy/time to formulate cleaver theoretical approaches to the issue or grand visions of the future.

The village of ------ Nabi Saleh ------- was under siege by midday. Just as in the recent weeks, Israelis wanting to join the demonstration had to take an extended hike through the rugged hills of the West Bank in order to reach the village. Once in the village, the unarmed demonstration was being crushed with live bullets, rubber-coated steel bullets and clouds of tear gas.

Just as the rain hit Tel Aviv marking the end of the Human Rights march, Nabi Saleh was being invaded by IDF soldiers firing live bullets in three directions. The small village, perched on a tired hilltop, was covered in tear gas. Due to the lack of wind, the tear gas was not escaping into the air thus the entire village was walking around as if in a drunken haze with tears in their eyes.

The siege of Nabi Saleh continued until sunset when the last IDF jeeps pulled out of the village. As soon as the army left small boys were running around collecting the hundreds of spent tear gas canisters. Watching them scramble to collect them, the absurdity of human rights day in Israel sunk in. As thousands of people held signs in Tel Aviv proclaiming peace and co-existence, roughly ten Israelis made the half an hour drive to Nabi Saleh or Ni’ilin (Bil’in held a demo as well which had a number of Israelis in attendance).

Imagine if that number was not ten but fifty Israelis. If fifty people from the thousands who marched in Tel Aviv had shown up in Nabi Saleh, the reality on the ground would have been different. Even thirty would have had a profound effect on the attitude of the soldiers and on the people of Nabi Saleh who draw profound inspiration from their Israeli and international supporters.

Why is it that thousands of leftist Israelis are able to gather under a public umbrella of human rights, joint struggle and value and not think about venturing into the West Bank to struggle with Palestinians? One path of co-existence lies in these joint actions of solidarity and since Palestinians are not allowed to enter Tel Aviv it is the responsibility of Israelis to go to the West Bank.The disconnection between human rights in Tel Aviv and human rights in the Occupied Territories was on display yesterday. While the march was a necessary competent of creating a new political space in Israel, it should be only one part of a larger platform which includes Palestinians in the Occupied Territories. Perhaps next year, we will see humans rights demonstrations from Nabi Saleh to Tel Aviv with more Israeli and Palestinians in both places.

Reminder: Register for Transportation to Saturday December 4 Weekly Demonstrations Against the Wall and the Settlements Beit Ommar Saturday December 4

Hi all,

the committee in Beit Umar is organizing for a larger demonstration this Saturday. This is in spite of and in response to the increased repression by the army. Most especially the remand without bail of a 13 year old Muhamad khalayil arrested at a demonstration over two weeks ago. Khalayil was arrested with Israelis and internationals who were next to him the whole time and can testify that he did not throw stone and have video of the demonstration. Still, the military appeal court decided to reverse a lower court order to release him and ordered him remanded without bail.
Please make an effort to come to the demonstration. If you can make it please call D.

This Friday's demonstration took place as a protest against the Wall, the settlements, and the Israeli practices of occupation, deportation and exclusion. A large group marched after Friday prayers from the center of the village toward the target areas of the Wall and settlements. The group consisted of about two dozen Israelis with the AAtW, international activists and Bil'iners.

The First Israeli-Palestinian Anti-Fascist March in Issawiyah

A few hundreds Israelis and Palestinians participated in this event for the first time in this occupied east Jerusalem - Al Kuds neighborhood. The chief slogan was: lift the siege from Issawiyah (a Palestinian neighborhood in the Occupied East Jerusalem, adjacent to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem). For almost a month the village is under the siege; this week two housing structures there were demolished; and most of the drivers were robbed by the Israeli police, when their cars were searched for alleged defects, then almost all the car owners of Issawiyah were fined. My friend received a fine of $333, as one of the mirrors was not firmly fixed. This is a policy of collective punishment of the residents for nonacceptance of the Israeli domination. Apparently, the numbers of cooperating Israelis and Palestinians that we witnessed today could make a decisive breach in the Apartheid policy of the Israeli regime. Yet, as soon as the Jewish demonstrators left the area, the Israeli Occupation Forces vilely entered the neighborhood and began shooting tear gas into the Palestinian youth. See the clouds of white smoke on the last pictures.

From: S. A. 2010/12/3 Subject: My Father Will Be Free

Dear friends,

I want to send you a big thank you from the depth of my heart. Your
contributions that are meant to free my father Ibrahim, as well as
Hassan Mousa and Zaydoon Srour have reached me in Ni'lin. With your
generous help I was able to pay the fines necessary to liberate the
leaders of our Committee Against The Wall.

My father, as well as the other two brave men will be free this

Sunday. All of this was only possible because you helped me to free
them. There are many things I want to tell you, so many things that
happened in the past weeks. Please forgive me that I didn't update you
regularly in the past month, but I had reason to believe that it would
risk my father's freedom if I talk about it before he is free or even
before I could pay the fines. I promise to tell you the details once
they come out of the jail and are safe, re-united with us.

In the past days I was a lot in the mountains with time to think. Many
things that were going around in my head. I want to share them with
