(en) Palestine-Israel, Another week of joint struggle, things are not as usual, Susya was the focus...
Tue, 26 Jun 2012 21:59:49 +0300
The first high pick of the third Intifada is nearly over with significant successes of the
hunger strike. As counter measure the Israeli state forces increase the harassments and
pressures on inhabitants of area C (69% of occupied west bank) to transfer out to area A
of the Palestinian authority. In the on going joint struggles of the AAtW with the popular
comities and activists, Nebi Saleh still get the most of the harassments. Quaddum and Beit
Ummar, which are too locations of regular struggle which is beyond the initial joint
struggles against the separation fence, get the on going pressure and punishment to
prevent the expansion to the other villages and small towns. Within Israel comrades were
involved with the struggle against deportation of African refugees and racial incitement
against them. The summer wave of the Israeli 'Occupy' social struggle is now blooming
"For the last three straight demos, plus during a farmer accompaniment activity, 4 members
of the Beit Ummar popular committee have been arrested. A 5th has been in jail for over 2
months. Younes Arar was arrested today, along with 2 internationals. We have been
overwhelmed with bail and legal fees. Please consider donating on our website,
www.palestinesolidarityproject.org/donate and contact me to help with other fundraising.
Younes being released Sunday on bail. One international released yesterday and one today
with a restraining order from Carmi Tzur. B."
5 Israelis,two dozen internationals and few dozen Bil'iners participated in the weekly
demonstration against the separation wall and occupation. The Israeli state force was mild
most of the time. Due to a friendly wind and mostly passive soldiers we had a relatively
peaceful half hour with only sporadic spray salvos of the skunk water spray that was not
so poignant. Afterwards the direction of wind changed and we were slowly driven away -
first to the near by groove by the skunk water, and later further away by a barrage of
tear gas. Afterwards came the second barrage of tear gas canisters that drove away even
the more resistant of us and we returned to the village.
Friday, demonstrators Protest Apartheid.
Dozens of Palestinians, joined by participants from around the world, held a peaceful
protest, demanding an end to the occupation and to the construction of the apartheid
Al-Maâsara is one of many Palestinian villages to be cut off from access to its
agricultural lands and water supplies by illegal Jewish settlements in the West Bank.
Peaceful protestors have gathered after Friday prayers every week for the past six years
to demonstrate against the illegal Israeli occupation of Palestine.
For the most part these demonstrations have been met with Israeli military blockade, but
only rarely with violence â the same cannot be said for other peaceful weekly protests
around the West Bank. Some Israeli soldiers laughed and spoke with a multinational group
from the United States and Europe. They spoke of their own begrudging participation in the
blockading of the streets of al-Maâsara each week to squash civil participation in such
protests and demonstrations. At least one soldier issues verbal threats and swore at the
peaceful demonstration, which included several unarmed children.
Friday pre-dawn invasion to deter the noon demonstration? Reports from Nabi Saleh that the
IOF invaded the village about an hour (approx 3.30 am Palestine Time). After firing live
ammunition, they left the village approximately a half hour ago.
Friday demo: Palestinian medical sources reported Friday that at least ten protesters were
wounded in Nabi Saleh village, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah, after Israeli
soldiers attacked the weekly nonviolent protest against the Wall and settlements in the
The protesters dubbed this weekâs protest as the âFriday of Defending the Lands and the
Detaineesâ. Ramallah and Al-Biereh Governor, Laila Ghannam, and representatives of the
Palestinian Journalists Syndicate participated in the protest, along with Israeli and
international peace activists.
The soldiers fired teargas bombs and rubber-coated metal bullets at the protesters, and
also sprayed them with Skunk-water, leading to at least ten injuries.
The army prevented the protesters from reaching the main entrance of the village that has
been closed for more than two weeks now, denying the residents the right to enter and
leave their village through it. Thus, they are forced to use round about and unpaved
roads. The army keeps closing the main entrances of the village as an act of punishment
carried out against the residents for holding nonviolent protests against the illegal
Annexation Wall and Israelâs illegal settlements.
Clashes were reported between local youths and the invading Israeli soldiers. Youths
hurled stones and empty bottles at the soldiers and the army fired gas bombs,
rubber-coated metal bullets and concussion grenades.

Weekly Vigil at Sheikh Jarrah Friday 22/6 at 16:00
60% of the West Bank is defined as C area which is under full Israeli control.
These are the main land reserves that the Israeli Government is intending for the
expansion of the settlements.
Last week a demolition order was issued to an entire Palestinian village â Susya.
The aim is clear: expelling the Palestinian residences of areas C and deepening the
Israeli control over their lands.
Join Us for an emergency action!
This coming Friday, 22 June, we will stand in Solidarity with the residence of Susya who
are determined to stick to their lands.
They are facing the might force of the Israeli Government and its right wing coalition,
the army the Civil Administration, settlers associations and discriminatory laws.
We will stand with them!
Hundreds of Palestinians, Israelis and internationals demonstrated today in Susya,
southeast of Hebron, to protest the impending demolition of the village and in show of
solidarity with local inhabitants. The protest was organized by a coalition of
organizations (Solidarity, Taâayush, Tarabut, Rabbis for Human Rights and many of the
activists of the anarchists against the wall participated in it too) in coordination with
the local committee. In addition, members of the Hebron Defense Committee and delegates
from Bilâin were in attendance. Protesters marched from the current location of the
village to lands that had been previously expropriated, carrying Palestinian flags and
banners, and chanting in Arabic, Hebrew and English, where they were met with several IOF
jeeps and foot soldiers and police officers, who brutally tried to suppress the march and
push them back towards the village. When protesters stood their ground the IOF used stun
grenades and tear gas, which caused several injuries, including one 18 year old Israeli
activist who was rushed to the hospital sustaining a head injury from a stun grenade. A
skunk truck was also present, and although it was constantly aiming at protesters to
intimidate them, the IOF refrained from actually using it.
Friday 22-6-12. Amazing demonstration Susya. Little more than four hundred Israelis and
200 Palestinians with internationals among them demonstrated. Palestinians and Israelis,
shouting against the destruction and depopulation of the village had expected such horrors
past knowledge. The army tried to scare the skunk truck and left without some guzzle gas
and stun grenades, one protester was injured and needed stitches in his head. Thanks to
all who came to show solidarity with the residents. Promise to continue to update on the
continuing struggle Susya.
â19 years old Israeli conscientious objector sustains head injury from a tear gas canister
in Susiya. He's taken to Hospital in Jerusalem for stitches. He'll be ok.

Media: Daphni Leef, one of the [more principled leading figures who do not search route to
be co-opted by the parliamentarian road. I.S.] leaders of Israel's social justice protest
movement, was arrested by police on Friday afternoon during a demonstration on Tel Aviv's
The demonstration, which began around noon, was meant to revive the social justice
protests that swept Israel last summer [with symbolic restoring the tent camp in the
Rothschild boulevard. I.S.]. A further 11 protesters were also arrested.
Several hundred demonstrators carried tents to the site, which they attempted to set up
along the street. However, municipal inspectors and police prevented them from placing the
tents on the ground and began arresting protesters.
Leef was dragged by force into a waiting police car, prompting hundreds of demonstrators
to block the road with their bodies in an attempt to prevent the car from leaving the site.
The protesters knocked over trash cans and shouted chants criticizing Tel Aviv Mayor Ron
Huldai and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
However, after several moments the police car managed to leave the scene, with Leef inside.
The eleven arrested were released in the morning after 7 hours of refusing to give them
Daphni Leef gypsed hand

"Tel Aviv Occupy": Saturday, a demonstration to protest police and city tugs harassment of
the participants of the Friday noon demo.
Thousands converged in Rothschild and Habima intersection in Saturday late evening in
protest of the Friday brutality harassment of the social struggle activists the same place
by the city tugs and police.
The police force tried in vain to block our way to the City square, but there were too
many alternative routes for them to block all... and we were too many for corralling
Only after more than an hour they gave in, and just moved to protect near by banks fronts.
The Iben Gvirol main street was occupied and the masses converged at the near by banks and
city main administrative building. After more than an hour of low intensity confrontation
with police and an hour of anger expressed toward the banks, (resulting in few glass
vitrines broken, people marched towards other main high ways. About 89 participates were
arrested - mainly near the banks.
In the morning, 75 were released at the police station. 14 were brought to court and
prosecutor asked for detaining them till end of trial. The judge criticized the police and
prosecution, and released most of them with restriction from the demo region till next
Saturday night, three were restricted for the whole two coming weeks :).

windows that was part of the weekend demonstration. But, nearly a quarter (23 percent )
said they agreed with the statement "It's too bad, but sometimes there's no choice and it
A smaller minority (9 percent ) fully supported the property damage "as part of the protest."
Though the Jewish demographic group that expressed the highest level of support for the
protest is secular Israelis (79 percent ), a majority of ultra-Orthodox (57 percent ) and
Orthodox (53 percent ) Israelis also expressed their support.
A rally was held on Monday in front of Tel Aviv city hall and disrupted the meeting of the
city council. The demonstrators plan to return on Tuesday to protest the violence on the
