(en) cnt-ait, Palestine: BIL'IN: 15 YEARS OF JOINT STRUGGLE AGAINST SEPARATION-FENCE/ WALL + FREEDOM FOR YONATAN POLAK

Date Fri, 14 Feb 2020 09:13:38 +0200


Bil'in, Friday 7 February 2020, the 779th weekly nonviolent demonstration against the occupation, the fence / separation wall and the settlers had a particular color: it marked our 15 years of common struggles, Israeli and Palestinian side by side, in the context of the "trump plan" ---- In a rainy winter noon, 20 Israeli activists from the Anarchists Against the Wall initiative joined militants from the village and the wider region. We converged in the center of the village, but since it was raining, we traveled by car to the oak grove of Abu Lamun, which is located near the wall. From there we marched to the gate in the separation wall chanting our slogans as usual .... while adding calls for freedom for Yonatan Polak (1), and against the Trump plan. ---- At the gate, we converged, and since there were no soldiers to confront us, people lit a big bonfire of used car tires and made some modifications to the door facilities, including by hanging Palestinian flags there.
After a long time, we walked to the point near the colony to confront the distant settlers.
There, activists lit another big tire bonfire. This act received a response from soldiers who - with a little delay - took up positions on the hill beyond the door. They fired a few cartridges of tear gas which accelerated the return of activists to the village.

His last arrest dates back to January 6, 2020, when plainclothes police came to arrest him at his workplace, at the headquarters of the Haaretz daily newspaper of the Israeli liberals, following a complaint filed by the right-wing organization Israeli Ad Kan in 2018, more than a year before. The far-right organization has accused him of organizing weekly demonstrations against the wall since 1983 and of inciting demonstrators to assault the Israeli military. In fact these weekly demonstrations,
During his judgment on January 9, he denounced the ill-treatment he received in prison (refusal of food, refusal of medical care). He also declared that he did not recognize the authority of the court, refused to deposit the bond of 140 euros to be free because he had done nothing illegal or illegitimate, and that in any case he refused any cooperation with the Israeli legal system. As a result, he has since been kept in prison ...
