(en) Palestin-Israel, Bil'in, The joint struggle against the occupation and the separation fence nearly back to normal

Date Fri, 15 Sep 2006 17:20:25 +0300

This Friday demonstration was influenced very much by the exposing of the border police
brutality in the Israeli media, and the return to the agenda of the failure of the
application of the naked force by Israeli state. May be the 5 minute clip about the
brutality suppression of the demonstrations in Bil'in in the second TV channel did
the trick. Any way after a month of efforts to abolish the weekly demonstrations in
Bil'in, this friday the Israeli forces did not declare it illegal and did not try
to disperse us. As usual, we started at noon the march from the village center on the
road leading to the route of the separation fence - Palestinians from Bil'in and from
the region, internationals, Israelis from the anarchists against the wall and others.
We marched chanting and some time even singing till we reached the last house of the

There, we encountered border police troupe who blocked the road and forbidden us from
continue to the route of the fence. As we refused to yield without struggle, there started
an attrition struggle of pushing mainly. We advanced few meters, and most of us were
pushed back few meters - like in previous times, though they succeeded after a while
to push most of us to the line of last house, few of us remained behind their line.
Though some of them threatened us with their batons, during the pushing, they had
strict order not to hit us too hard. Never the less they were not too gentle and few
comrades were hurt and some even slightly injured.

This time, the agreement with the stone throwers was respected by them. They did not
throw stones were we demonstrated - not before the demonstrated declared ended, and
even later they did not throw it on the retreating demonstrators. To be on the safe
side when we ended the demonstration we returned in a round about route so not to
pass through the stone war zone.

In spite of the provocation of the border police who sent small groups to the orchards
on the side of the road, they could not start the stone throwing too early.

When we were returning to the center of the village we could hear the confrontation
of the border police and the stone throwers as the police shoot rubber coated bullets.
