(en) Palestine-Israel, Bil'in, the joint struggle still continur and kicking

Date Fri, 06 Oct 2006 21:24:52 +0200

This Friday we kept the tradition of joint struggle against the separation fence and
occupation demonstration in spite of the Ramadan fasting and hot whether. About 50
people - Palestinians, internationals and a dozen Israelis from the anarchist against
the wall initiative. We marched at noon from the center of the village to the gate to
the route of the separation fence - chanting the usual rimes. When we arrived at the
blocked gate to the route we found that the state forces kept a narrow opening to enable
- or better to lure us into a controlled physical confrontation. Few people tried to pass
through the opening and two of them were roughly detained - to be released later.
After the usual (mostly verbal) confrontation with the state force gendarmes, just before
ending the demonstration, the unruly youngsters started to throw stones at the gate
keepers, which was surely in order to provoke them to harass the participants of the
nonviolent demonstrators.

(This is one of the expressions of the prolonged conflict in the village between the supporters
of the nonviolent joint struggle with the Israelis and the opponents find is the stone
throwing on the Israeli state forces confronting the Friday nonviolent demonstrators.
This usually give the state forces an excuse to attack the nonviolent demonstrators.
It was a big surprise to day that they did not do so - they just restricting themselves
to the confrontation with the stone throwers.

To evade the state force harassment we left the area near the gate and started to walk
back to the village along the fence (instead of the road which was turned a war zone
between the state force shooting rubber coated bullets and tear gas grenades and the
stones throwing youngsters). However, this Friday the state forces tried again
to force us to pass through the war zone by blocking our way with tear gas canisters...
So we returned to the gate but this time we went back to the village the other way through
the near by olive grove and evaded both the state force and the stone throwers.
