The joint Palestinian-Israeli struggle against the wall ignited a wide
mass nonviolent struggle of the Palestinian villagers most effected, combined
with Israeli radicals around the core of the Anarchists Against The Wall and
international activists. The struggle contributed - both directly and indirectly
through international involvement, to a supreme "justice" courthouse stay on the
route of the Wall which harm the Palestinian villagers. While there is a lull
in the construction of most of the route, the struggle continue.
While lot of activists are involved with the long march along the rote of the
Wall, about 100 activists gathered in the municipal cinematic of Tel Aviv
to view the documented video of the struggle - starting from the first joint
struggle at Mas'ha march 2003 till these days.

The first joint demonstration of the people of Mas'ha with the Israeli
anarchists and international ended with the establishment of a camp on
the route. On request of the local villagers the symbolic joint act continued for
months and was a catalyst in the igniting of mass activity of the Palestinian
nonviolent direct action struggle against the construction of the Wall,

There were many small victories which though only delaying the construction
contributed to the building of high moral and involvement of more and more
people. After half a year of struggle, the first damage inflicted by the
initiative to the less robust part of the fence at Zabuba, ignited red alarm
at the Israeli authorities who responded in the next symbolic physical
damage to a gate of the Wall with shooting to hit with live ammunition on the
Israeli activists.

This act which resulted with serious harm to a leg of one of the Israeli activists
caused a havoc in the media and public opinion - which pushed the authorities
to clumsy lies that all the Israelis have seen exposed in the main TV channels.

In the panel after the long documentaries people summed the contribution
of the initiative of The Anarchists Against The Wall to the delegitimizing
of the Wall as tool for annexation of Palestinian territory and quiet transfer
of the villages. The contribution of the initiative to the upsurge of mass non
violent direct action of the Palestinians and internationalism was mentioned
