(en) Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle of the anarchists against the wall* and the popular comities loose momentum.
Wed, 03 Oct 2012 09:40:11 +0200
The ferment and anger increase in the general population of the occupied west bank and
Gaza. The already two weeks daily evening stone throwing of the Shabab of Qalandia at the
Israeli check post. The economic ferment of unemployed in the west bank forced Israel to
admit economic support in fear of the collapse of the Palestinian authority. The more than
50 thousands of Palestinians working daily in Israel are part of this economic
compromises. However, the Israeli efforts to transfer out farmers from the agrarian areas
of C category intensify with the unofficially help of the settlers. The involvement of the
Israeli activists in Nabi Saleh, Beit Ummar and South of Hebron Hills area are the most
damaging to this project and the pogrom at Anata-Anatot where state forces personnel who
live there participated with immunity was a clear message to the Israeli activists.
Last 3 Fridays in Bil'in
10-"15 Israelis and a similar number of internationals joined the village activists and
the Shabab each of the last three weekly demonstrations in Bil'in against the separation
wall used for robbing village lands, and the occupation. The demos included the burning of
the Oslo accords coffin and solidarity with the Italian No TAV campaign. One demonstration
enjoyed the presence of British parliament members and another was joined by a Serbian TV
crew. The demonstrations started peacefully, but escalated quickly due to the soldiers'
shooting/ pointing guns/ preparing the "skunk" smelly water canon. In two of the three
demonstrations, a few demonstrators managed to stage a very brief sit-in on the path
between the barbed wire and the wall. In all three demonstrations, after most participants
backed off due to the army's violence, the shabab continued to use stones as means for
soldier-control, albeit with limited success. Last week soldiers crossed the wall to chase
demonstrators and kept shooting gas far beyond the fence, choking many demonstrators. This
week gas was shot - surprisingly - in the direction of the kids throwing stones, rather
than the peaceful participants standing behind. The shabab then moved to the southern
stretch of the wall and continued fighting back with the wind at their backs instead of
their faces. During the three demos a few people (including a first aid person) suffered
direct hits from gas canisters, and many suffered from the gas.
Friday demonstration, Sep. 28, 2012
Friday demonstration, 28, 2012
A weekly protest against the expansion of the nearby Jewish settlement of Halamish. During
the weekly Friday demonstration in Nabi Saleh, the IOF attempted to disperse protesters
using skunk water, tear gas and rubber coated steel bullets. Resisting these attempts, the
village's youth hurled stones at the invading army until the soldiers finally retreated
and the main gate was opened.

South Hebron Hills
Settlers and soldiers continue to harass the Palestinians residents of the area.
This Tuesday, settlers and soldiers expelled Palestinian shepherds from their lands near
the outpost of Avigail.
Also that, an army officer cashed away a herd near Mufaqra. Later that day it was revealed
that Last Saturday, settlers from Mitzpe Yair expelled shepherds from the area of Umm
el-Aryais and throw stones at them. Army forces presented an unsigned closed military zone
order for the area. Despite the settlers' violence, the police chose to arrest a
Palestinian shepherd and an Israeli activist.
Later that day, settlers from Havat Maon throw stones on the participants of a protest
march against firing zone 918 and the plan to evict eight villages in South Hebron Hills.

This coming Saturday, September 29, we need as many activists as possible to accompany
them and stand up for their rights. There is a direct link between the number of activists
who come to accompany the farmers and their ability to harvest and work their lands.
Hi Everyone, The Freedom Bus is coming to Wallajeh tomorrow (Friday) and there will be an
action/demonstration in the village. If you'd like to come please be there by 12:45pm at
the mosque closest to the entrance of the village. For info regarding rides please call

Wednesday late evening, About two hours demo in solidarity with the Spanish and Greece
demonstrations. Few dozens of social struggle activists - including some anarchists
against the wall with a black flag, converged at the Spanish embassy building. After short
peaches and chants we marched to the near by main street (Iben Gvirol boulevards). As the
police were extremely tolerant - only redirecting the traffic and protecting the
demonstrators from passing cars, we marched for a while in the street, blocked
intersections and one direction traffic, did educational activity for drivers and
costumers of pubs sitting on the pavements.
