(en) Palestine-Israel, Bil'in, Friday demonstration continue and draw supporters from all over the world.

Date Fri, 10 Nov 2006 17:56:06 +0200


This Friday demonstration was following a Thursday meeting of the Bil'in popular
comity for struggle against the separation fence and activists of the anarchists
against the wall initiative. In the meeting we discussed the strategy for the
near future struggle and today's demo. In this demo who started at noon from the
village center towards the route of the separation fence participated the usual
Bil'in villagers, Israeli anarchists against the wall, ISM internationalists and
also a delegation of white haired old time activists from France, including the
comrade injured in Bil'in last Friday by Israeli live amunition. We marched
along the road chanting as usual, and to the sound drams with black ribos...
We roused the memory of thr people murderd at Beit Hanun by Israeli artilery and
the second year for the death of the late Yaser Arafat.

When we arrived at the route of the fence and the blocked entrance to it by the
Israeli stae forces one of the marchers gave a speach. Then, we along the fence
that border the route in the middle of it pass the electronic separation fence.

On our way we dragged from their place along the border of the route sections of
the barbed wire spool. The soldiers did not like it and tried to deter us with
shock grenades and even some tear gas canisters. We were not deterred by the
noise of the shock grenades. We threw away or back to the soldiers tear gas
canisters and suffered a bit the tear gas... but were not deterred.

After a protracted confrontation - including verbal, we reached a point where
the fence bordering the route was less prohibiting. While the few soldiers
following us tried to stop us, most of the demonstrators who were around,
succeeded to enter the route and stay near the electronic fence and even
touch it. At that point, lot of the soldiers who harried to block us just
confronted physically the few of us who failed to enter the route of the fence.

After a long hour, we decided to return to the village taking a long route
so we will evade the battle ground between the stone throwers and the state
forces.

This Friday most of the stone throwers respected the agreement with the
popular comity to do their acts not within the nonviolent demonstration.
Few of them who did not respected it were driven away when they tried
to disrupt our activity at the fence by stone throwing.

With the "music" of the shooting of rubber coated bullets and grenades from
the battle ground, most of us returned for a meeting summing this Friday
demo, some of us - mainly the photographers stayed behind to document the
struggle between the state force and the stone throwers to supply some
protection by deterring the use of live ammunition, as the soldiers did
use last Friday demonstrations - injuring with it the neck of a 13 year old
kid and the hand of a 69 year old participant of the France delegation of
activists.
