(en) Palestine-Israel, Imneizil & Bil'in, The joint struggle against the apartheid wall continued on Monday June 27th, .

Date Wed, 29 Jun 2005 10:33:53 +0300

The ruthless repression of the Israely state forces are restrained
when Israeli activists are participating in the non violent actions
against the apartheid fence which robe Palestinian lands. It is well
known they have two specific sets of orders about which means of
dispersing to use: i.e. what kind of amunition to use and whether
to use live amunition or not, the Imneizil people invited the Anarchists
Against The Wall (AATW) to join them. The Monday 27th demo was not the first
act of struggle against the wall. It was however one of the most successfull.
On Monday, villagers from Imneizil in South Hebron district (who was
not reinforced that day by people of the AATW initiative as they were
blocked by the Israeli army) brought the Occupation bulldozers to a halt.

Palestinian flags adorned the bulldozers which have razed 400
dunums of land here in the last week as villagers took back
their confiscated land. Two Palestinians were injured as the
Occupation Forces spent several hours pushing and beating
demonstrators back.

Protestors assembled in the afternoon from the small village of
Imneizil in South Hebron and marched to the hills and the
worksite of the Occupation Forces and their machinery.
Villagers blocked the path of the bulldozers bringing their work
to a standstill. Demonstrators rejoiced as they mounted the
bulldozers and took back their land which has been confiscated
for the Apartheid Wall and the expansion of the settlements.

Occupation Forces beat villagers forcing them back into the
village where they will be ghettoized by the Apartheid Wall.
There were two injuries as the Occupation deployed its
standard violence and brutality.

So far around 400 dunums of fertile land has been destroyed
and several hundred trees uprooted for the Apartheid Wall.
Farmland containing grape, olive and almond trees - and
which yielded the life source for the village - has been
destroyed. The Wall will isolate land that is expected to be
annexed into the nearby settlement of Metzadot Yehuda,
immediately to the south of the village. One of the village’s
main water wells will also be isolated behind the Wall.

Water shortages are becoming an increasingly dire problem in
Hebron district as the Wall’s route has been planned to
isolate many of the local natural water resources. A settler
bypass road is also under construction, parallel to the Wall,
which will pass just 15 metres from the village school. Located
between the Apartheid Wall and settler roads, villages across
Palestine are being turned into disparate and miserable
ghettos, cut off from land and life.

================= BIL'IN ===================

Bil'in, the joint struggle of the villagers continue, togather with
the Israli anarchists and the wider coalition against the wall/fence.
The struggle in Bil'in continues with determination and creativity.
Every week for the past few months the people of Bil'in have demonstrated
against the construction of the wall and the expansion of settlements on
their confiscated lands.

During these months the people of Bil’in have become the symbol of
non-violent resistance in Palestine; incorporating into they actions an
extensive repertoire of creative elements in accordance to their
commitment to direct action. Every week the people of Bil'in invented
new and creative ways that included placards, art effects and
communicates of political and humanist messages.

The suppression of the army try to deny the human nature of the
Palestinians but the they succeed to counter act this and keep
their humanity and dignity.

Last week, a segment of the fence – closest to the Bil’in - was cut by a
group of young people from the village. There is a real danger that the
military will retaliate against this action with severe force, using
collective punishment against the local residents. This, according
to the high rank commander Tsahy Segev who admitted to Miron Rapoport
of Haaretz daily when he revealed to him his mode of opperation in Bil'in

In light of these developments -the presence of Israelis is needed more
than ever to support this inspiring struggle.

This Friday there will be another demo in the village. All of you are
most welcome.
