(en) Israel, 40 years since 1967 war and occupation - non-authoritarian initiative promoted by the AATW - press conference on 40 occupation in Jerusalem

Date Mon, 14 May 2007 20:43:02 +0300

40 Occupation - Coalition of Left Wing groups and activists to organize protest actions, marking 40 years to the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian Territories ---- www.kibush40.org --- Making the account: 40 years of occupation in Jerusalem - a comprehensive report - A press conference, Tuesday, May 15, 2007 , 13 pm New Imperial Hotel, Jaffa Gate, Old City , Jerusalem
In the press conference we will present systematic data on trends and changes in Jerusalem since 1967. As organizations and individuals active against the occupation, we will take up aspects which the State of Israel prefers to ignore - in declarations and the formally-sponsored ethos of "United Jerusalem", as well as in daily practice on the ground. Our comprehensive report includes data and explanation on the widespread Israeli construction in the Jerusalem Region and its implications; the confiscation of lands in East Jerusalem ; the neglect of the Palestinian neighborhoods; the Separation Wall which cuts through neighborhoods; the educational system in East Jerusalem ; the limitations on family unification ; and more.


* Hagit Ofran, Peace Now Settlement Watch Team, will speak on policies and developments in the Israeli construction in East Jerusalem and the Jerusalem Region.

* Dr. Meir Margalit, Field Coordinator of the Israeli Committee against House Demolitions and former Jerusalem City Councilor for Meretz, will speak of the discrimination of the Palestinian neighborhoods in Jerusalem .

* A testimony of a Palestinian Jerusalem inhabitant (name to be published).

"40 Occupation" is a convergence of left-wing organizations and activists (among them The Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions, Coalition of Women for Peace, Gush Shalom, Indymedia, Anarachists Against the Wall, Taayush, Zochrot, Hadash and others) who are organizing protest actions to mark the fortieth anniversary of the Occupation. In order to effect a change in the reality and an end of the occupation a tactic of widespread resistance is needed, and therefore the method of Convergence was chosen, which was used with great success in such struggles as the 1999 demonstrations against the World Bank in Seattle . In convergence, various groups organize publicly around a common purpose, relying on a coordinated but autonomous and decentralized participation.

During six days, from June 5 to 11, there will take place a variety of events including exhibitions, demonstrations, and other political and artistic events, aimed at putting on the public agenda the occupation and the millions of people suffering under its yoke. June 9-10 were declared as international days of protest against the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian Territories , and we will hold the main demonstration on Saturday, June 9.

* At the press conference there will be distributed a disc with data, maps and photos.
