(en) Palestine-Israel, Bil'in, Beit Surik - the daily struggle continue

Date Sun, 29 May 2005 23:46:02 +0300

Friday, the Israeli state forces "succeeded" to block a contingent of anarchists against
the wall initiative who were on their way to a joint demonstration against the apartheid
fence at Bil'in. The army and police detained the Israelis on their way at the Nielin road
block. First, the comrades were detained for three hours at the road block on the pretext
that the region was declared a closed military zone - open only for the Israeli colonialist
settlers. Than they were arrested and were arrested and held two additional hours at the Givat
Zeev police before being released. However, like previous times when our comrades were prevented
from arriving to joint demos, round about routs were found, and so was today's Sunday. This time,
to another village of the region where two monthes ago state forces masquarading as Palestinians
shoot on demonstrators and arrested few of them. The nonviolent demonstration at the fence
building succeeded today to stop the works.

In the demonstration participated less than a hundred local villagers, Anarchists
Against The Wall and internationals. However, they succeeded to prevent the army
and the builders company to do preparation works for the heavy equipment
and bulldozers that will be used to rob big part of the lands of Beit Surik.

The demonstration started to march from Beit Surik towards the route of
the fence at 09:00 in the morning. They arrived to the vicinity of
the settlement Har Adar from where the surveyors of the route were
supposed to start their day work.

Five jeeps of the border police, a police car of the special
forces, and a lorry with horses of mounted police arrived as
a reinforcement to the builder company guards.... But all of them
stayed within the parameters of the settlement and did not
approach the demonstrators.

The stand still continued till noon, when the state forces
and surveyors left the place, and so did the demonstrators...
With no arrested or injured among the demonstrators, the works
were stopped for the day.

The works on the route of the fence through the lands of
Beit Surik were blocked for few months by a stay order
of the Israeli pseudo "highest court of justice", which
canceled it few weeks ago following a minor change in the
route. The army notified the inhabitants of Beit Surik
that the works will resume to day... but failed to do so.

In the previous round of demonstrations two months ago
Israeli forces masquerading as Palestinians shoot on the
demonstrators and detained 6 of the demonstrators, but
released them when they have learnt that Israelis who
were in the demo photographed their activity and delivered
the material to the media.

A short video clip of that shooting is at:
