(en) Palestine-Israel, The third Intifada collect momentum with clear contribution of the joint struggle* (it)
Mon, 21 Jan 2013 15:27:34 +0200
Lot of the Israeli activists in the joint struggle with Palestinian popular initiative
were skeptic about the contribution of the anarchist against the wall initiative. They
fail to see its contribution to the recruiting and encouraging of the less radical
Israelis to initiate and/or participate in joint actions with Palestinians. They fail to
see the contribution and legitimizing the struggle in the world arena, they fail to see
the contribution for publicity - both within the Israeli main streem media and the world
(Fife Brocken Cameras nominee for oscar), and most of all the creation of a security net
that prevent Israel from suppressing the popular struggle in a Bloodbath and mass arrest
of the Palestinian activists. The later picks of Bab Al Shams (the Sun gate) camp in
Jerusalem and Al-Karamah (Dignity) at Beit Iksa no one can ignore.
A village in northwest of Jerusalem - a region where joint actions with the anarchists
against the wall occurred during the years took a new initiative: Activists build a new
protest village on Friday Jan. 18, 2013. They set up three tents and a small building in
the area near Beit Iksa, naming it: Al-Karamah (Dignity). Around 400 performed Friday a
demonstration prayers in the open area. An activist from nearby village Beit Ijza, said
the camp was "a message to Israel and all democratic societies that we are human, and we
want peace." Activists from across the political spectrum, mainly from nearby villages,
have gathered and planed to sleep in the tents overnight.
Beit Iksa, surrounded by Israeli settlements, is set to be entirely encircled by Israel's
separation wall, cutting it off from Jerusalem. Israeli authorities ordered lately the
confiscation of 500 dunams of the village's land three weeks ago, and do not permit any
new building in the town, while Israeli settlements in the region were still expanding.
Israeli forces immediately shut down the military checkpoint at the entrance to Beit Iksa
to prevent more activists and supporters from accessing the protest site, witnesses said.
The tented village Bab al-Shams, set up to protest Israel's plans to build the "E1"
settlement on the land, severing the West Bank from Jerusalem started a new dimension in
the Palestinian struggle and that more protest villages would be established. "Today in
Beit Iksa, tomorrow in other areas."
Sunday, the palestinian outpost at Beit iksa is asking for Israelis to Join them soon. If
people can go please call k.
"Occupation soldiers “visit” Gate of Dignity (Bab AlKarama) early morning, then close
checkpoint, confrontations now going on. Media people and activists needed now on location
and activists around the world can publicize.
It was too cold to sleep for most of us last night at the Gate of Dignity encampment and
the army “visited” us early in the morning. Yesterday we had to overcome the Israeli
checkpoint at the entrance of Beit Iksa but today the occupation forces closed the
checkpoint and are attacking peaceful demonstrators with tear gas and stun grenades. Read

At night, between Sunday and Monday the army destroyed the camp. T. report it was without
Friday weekly demonstration, Jan. 18, 2013. The demo was more lively than the previous
Friday as we had with us the activists who went last Friday to Bab Al-Shams...
The state forces who used along the years the demonstrations against the wall and
occupation in Bil'in as testing ground showered on us a new kind of gas which cause
breathing problem to most participants.

Jan. 18, 2013 Protest after the killing of Samir Awad.
"The popular comity against the separation fence and colonial settlement in Jwerusalem
invite us for a protest vigil against the occupation and the strengthen of the extreme
right, on Tuesday (election day) 22.01.13. Meeting point: Nablus (Shkhem) gate 12:00."
The weekly Friday demonstration in Nabi Saleh was dedicated to 16 years old Samir Awad
from Budrus, who was shot and killed by the IOF earlier in the week. Protesters marched
down the road towards the main entrance to the village when they were attacked with skunk
water, tear gas and rubber coated steel bullets. Nabi Saleh youth have managed to push the
IOF back down the road towards the checkpoint at the entrance of the village.
Reports are that Nariman has suffered a foot injury. No more reports as yet to her
condition, except activists on the ground are attempting to get her medical aid.

South Hebron hills
"This Saturday morning, the Israeli army violently arrested 5 Israeli activists and 10
Palestinians in their privately owned lands the area of Qawais in South Hebron Hills. The
arrests were carried out in order to prevent the Palestinian farmers from working their
lands. Three of the women detainees are minors, among them a 2 year old.
Three Palestinians who were arrested in South Hebron hills yesterday, among them a mother
to a baby and an elderly man, are still under arrest.
Due to the mass arrests, we were unable to accompany additional farmers who need our help
to plow their lands. We need your help in accompany them tomorrow (Sunday). Besides being
critical to the farmers livelihood, every season the lands are not plowed increases the
chance of their being taken over by the occupation forces or settlers.
To join tomorrow, please call Ezra.
Please make an effort to come tomorrow. If you are unable to come, please circulate."
