About 20 comrades were arrested in a demo in Budrus initiated by the radical anti
occupation people - including the Anarchists Against The Wall initiativePalestine-Israel,
"We arrived at the village at around 12:30 and started marching at
around 13:00. we were about 150 palestinians and 50 israelis and
internationals. we stood on the hill, and didn't attempt to walk
towards the soliders, for a bit more than an hour. We chanted and
sang and the whole time people from the village stopped the Shabab
from throwing a single stone. The village then decided the protest
was over. We started walking back, I managed to see one shower of
stones and then we started running from the sound grenades and tear
gas. A bunch of us crowded between 2 buildings, and suddenly we were
surrounded by Magav (border police) who were threatning the people in
the house, and not letting anyone of us leave. The made us sit down
and then told all the israelis to get up and that we were arrested.

We walked to where the protest was and were made to stand against a
wall that was a sort of ramp where internationals were standing with
magav. Suddenly the magav started hitting everyone and I saw a guy on
the floor being kicked by at least 4 Magav, and a at least 3
internationals who were beaten over the head with sticks while
soldiers were shouting in hebrew "lie down on the ground!". We
couldn't do anything, it was horrible. The guy who was kicked was a
palestinian they arrested with us.

They then took us to a shady hill near the village where we sat for
about 3 hours. We were two internationals (one of whom is a
reporter), 2 palestinians who were accused of throwing stones (the
one who was beaten up, and another one who was grabbed from his house
and apparently wasn't even in the protest- they obviously both never
did such thing) and 16 israelis (including 3 minors under 18).only
the second palestinian was handcuffed.

We were taken in a very crowded truck where we decided on jail
solidarity with the internationals and palestinians.

We got to police station in Beit Aryeh where they let us sit on the
grass outside for hours, which was very nice. The internationals were
relaesed quite quickly, around 19:00, me and another guy were told
not to enter Budrus for the next 14 days but werent given anything to
sign and got our IDs back, and another woman needed to be at work the
next day so she signed it at around 22:00.

The others waited on the grass till we knew what was happening with
the palestinians. At the end the one who was beaten was released on
the same condition as the israelis, and the other was taken to Ofer
but was paid bail for in the same night. Everyone were realeased
around 23:00.

we went home feeling tired but in high spirits and very much in
solidarity with eachother.
