(en) Palestine Israel, Azun Atme, A new front of joint struggle against the separation fence and occupation

Date Thu, 16 Nov 2006 21:56:44 +0200

Azun Atme is a typical Palestinian village. Less than two thousands inhabitants,
and many of his adults are working their land. In many ways it is not so typical
as it has modern hothouse agriculture - in addition to the traditional olive
grooves. It is also different as it is cut by the separation fence that pass
on its East. About a month ago the village was notified that there will be
built a separation fence that will encircle the village from all sides and will
robe 4 thousand dunams (4 square kilometers) of its land. It will also encircle
as separate entity a small part of the village on the the other side of the road
that was built to serve the near by Israeli colonial settlements. A delegation
of the anarchists against the wall initiative was invited to a meeting to discus
the option for joint struggle and today was the first demonstration against the
new separation fence that was already started to be built.

Around noon, a group of activists of the AATW joined two hundreds of Azun
villagers (including few of its females and some old people) near the
municipality house and started a long march towards the site of the works on
the separation fence. The marchers held high lot of banners and flags.

When we were on our way from the intersection to the village and when we
assembled near the municipality armored cars of the Israeli forces showed their
presence. When we arrived near the fence building site few armed cars and a
chain of soldiers blocked our way.

After half an hour nearly quiet stand still the commander declared the area
behind the road block as closed military area threating to arrest any one
who will cross that line. Then a belligerent sergeant started to harass some
children and activists of AATW confronted him and made him stop.

After another hour the demonstration ended and every one returned home.

It was a strange experience to see and hear talking two inhabitants of
a near by Israeli colonialist settlement who came to the demonstration
in support to the objection to the new fence surrounding the Azun village.
