(en) Israel-Palestine, Jerusalem, The kids of Bil'in village demonstrated in front of the Israeli supreme court

Date Wed, 15 Jun 2005 17:01:36 +0300

Tuesday 14.6.05 morning, a bit after 09:00, a bus parked in front of
the building of the Israeli supreme court in Jerusalem. From the buss
came out about 50 girls and boys from the village Bil'in, who came
to demonstrate against the robbery of the lands of the village for the
building of the apartheid wall/fence. The kinds (who do not need a
military permit to entered the 1948 borders of israel - the pre 1967
ones) were escorted by two adults from the village, part of the very
few who have a permit to pass through the plethora of road blocks within
the palestinian areas and between them and Israel. The kids demo was while
the judges were dealing with the village people contest of the building of
the wall/fence on their lands. They were joined by anarchists and
international activists, that sang, placards... and functioned also
as baby-sitters for the youngest.

After two hours of peaceful presence at the location, with no
problems, a bunch of policemen arrived with the demand to put away
the Palestinian flags held by the kids. Their "original" excuse
to that insolent demand was: to protect the security of the

The adults escort who came with the kids from the village, were afraid
from development of confrontation between the kids and the policemen
and preferred to bow their heads and to try the flags from the kids,
who were not quick to yield. An internationalist activist who was present
there and was wrapped with a Palestinian flag, refused the order to take it
off, was arrested and taken to the police station. Only few hours later
he was released with out conditions.

The demonstration was ended peacefully after about 3 hours.
The village kids used the opportunity of a visit in Jerusalem
- Al Kuds, to a quick visit at the Al Aksa mosque (At the mount temple).
