A leaflet distributed in the demonstration Saturday evening in front
of the Israeli war office in Tel Aviv in protest of shooting a comrades
during the direct action against the wall at Mesha the previous day.
Yesterday we experienced the reality of our Palestinian brothers.
The shooting of the Israeli army on us, Israeli activists, is a crossing
of a red line never crossed before, but it must remind us the daily atrocities
of the army in the occupied regions. In this weekend too the killings, the
closures, the strangulation, the invasion and the annexation continue.
The shooting on us will not deter us from continuing actively resisting
the Apartheid wall built before our eyes. Yesterday we break the gate
of Mesha, but it must be remembered that all along the route of the wall
the gates stay blocked and the Palestinian people remain with no access to
their source of income. We will continue to try to block the occupation
with our bodies, to open a breach in the wall of hatred, and to put with
our actions a lively and kicking alternative to the geto policy of the
Israeli government.

We express solidarity with our comrade Gil from Kibbutz Reim who was shoot at
by the Israeli army just few weeks after he was released from army service.
Gil was hit in his two legs by live ammunition and was taken unconscious
to Beilinson Hospital diagnosed there as in serious condition. To day,
Saturday Gil regained consciousness for the first time, and was able to smile
and talk. The condition of his legs still not clear. We send him our wishes
for his quick recovery.

We express our solidarity with our comrade Jonathan from Tel Aviv, held
by the Ariel Police since the action as he refused to sign on commitment
not to enter the occupied territories for three months. He is scheduled
to be brought in Saturday to court in Rishon-Letsion for prolonging his
arrest*. We call from here to immediate release of Jonathan.

Description of the direct action:
About 13:00 we came to the gate of the apartheid fence built between the
village Mesha to the illegal settlement Elkana. In spite of the army promise
all the last few weeks the gate stayed shut, and prevented the inhabitants
of Mesha to reach their fields and sources of income. It was a nonviolent
demonstration in which we wanted to do a symbolic act of protest against
the building of the fence and the closure of the gate. To our astonishment,
the soldiers started to through on us big stones, then they shoot in the air,
and on the ground near us. In spite of our calls "do not shoot, this is non
violent demonstration, we have no intention to heart you", and the holding
high of signposts in Hebrew against the wall, after just few minutes and without
warning the soldiers started to shoot with live ammunition towards the
bodies of the demonstrators. From this shooting Gil's legs were hit. In
contradiction to the army spokesperson, no tear gas was shoot towards us
and no warnings were given by the soldiers. The have not communicate
with us in any way before the shoot to hit with live ammunition.

The activity was carried as part of the protest camp against the wall
started a week ago in the village Dir-Balut in Sumeria. The camp inhabited
24 hours a day by Israeli and Palestinian people is located on the route
of the apartheid wall within the half built school of Dir-Balut. The building
of the school was stopped after the confiscation of the land needed for
the building of the wall. We invite the media who believe in the promises
of the promises of the prime minister Ariel Sharon, about the so called
evacuation of the illegal settlements, to come and see for themselves the
project of annexation of land and the expansion of settlements that continue
even these days.
