(en) Palestine-Israel, Persecution of demonstrators against the wall/fence continue - solidarity is needed

Date Sat, 09 Jul 2005 17:26:04 +0300

Last Friday was a joint demonstration against the fence in the village
Mas'ha. Already at the beginning of the demonstration the participants
(about 400 Palestinians and 50 Israelis according to Media) stumbled on
barbed wire spool which was put across the road few hundreds meters of
the fence route. In front of the barbed wire stood tens of soldiers and
border police personal with batons ready. Part of the demonstrators
passed the barbed wire and advanced towards the fence. They got in return
beaten with the batons and 4 of them were arrested - including an international
female activist, who was injured and taken to hospital. Two of the others
were accused of entering the occupied territories in spite of the command
of the general commanding the region and was banned from entering the whole
region. One member of the Anarchists Against The Wall initiative (Kobi
Snits) was beaten by a baton and was accused with assault of a policeman
thus was held for the night in the Ariel police station and will be brought
in front of a judge (at Rishon Letzion) at the end of Saturday.

The false accusation of demonstrators are part of the frantic efforts
of the Israeli authorities to block the joint struggle of Israelis and
Palestinians which put strict limit on the measures of repression they
can apply when Israelis are participating.

Part of this efforts can be seen in the cases of the prominent activists
like Jonathan Polak and Ezra Nawi who were banned from entering the whole
of the occupied territories for a month.

Presence in court of people who can when Kobi will be brought before
the judge will be both a worthy protest and have an influencing effect
on the decision of the judge.

Every one who can come to the court house is invited to phone
Adar at 052-5444866.
