BACKGROUND:
Kufr Thulth, a village of 4000, is surrounded by 4 illegal Israeli settlements.
In 2001, settlers began to establish an another outpost on the land owned by
villagers from Kufr Thulth, by placing empty caravans on the land.
In 2003, settlers began to regularly visit the caravans on weekends.
Two roads were established for settler use, while Palestinian roads were
blocked or destroyed. The IOF established a watchtower in the area.
The village took the case to the Israeli courts and won an injunction to
close the settler roads. In response, the IDF declared the roads to be
for military use and have since prevented Palestinains access to the
area.

In mid 2004, settlers raided Palestinian lands and uprooted and cut
around 150 almond and olive trees. The Israeli police refused to
accept complaints from the village. In October, settlers once again raided
the Palestinian fields and cut more trees with the protection of the IOF
and the Israeli District Coordinating Liaison (DCL)

Since October 2004, settlers have started to live and establish housing
infrastructure on the land, all of which has been done under the
protection of the IOF. Palestinain farmers have been attacked, shot at,
prevented from reaching their land and more trees have been cut, again
all under the protection of the IOF.


ACTION:
Kufr Thulth invites all Palestinians, Israelis and Internationals who
oppose the building of illegal settlements and the military occupation
of Palestinians lands to participate in a non-violent act of resistance
on Sunday, November 7.

You are invited to assembly at the village council (Baladiyye) and then
move to the Palestinian fields, where we will then march towards the
Israeli military base where the village will present a set of demands.

THE VILLAGE OF KUFR THULTH DEMANDS THE FOLLOWING:

* Close the road that passes through the Palestinian lands,
carrying out the Israeli court orders.

* Stop the cutting and uprooting trees by the settlers.

* Stop the stealing of Palestinian lands by settlers

* Secure the right of the Palestinian farmers to work in and grow
their lands

* Remove all the settler houses and other buildings from the
Palestinian lands


Please
wear appropriate dress.

You are also welcome to bring banners and placards in support of the
village.
