Palestinian Grassroots Anti-apartheid Wall Campaign

Israel’s construction of the Apartheid Wall in the West Bank constitutes a grave violation of human rights and international law. The Apartheid Wall will result in the unilateral demarcation of a new border in the West Bank and the effective annexation of occupied land. Other violations of international law include collective punishment of the civilian population, the seizing of private property by an occupying power, the demolition of houses and property, and the violation of such basic human rights as the right to work and freedom of movement. In this fact sheet, which analyzes the Wall and its impact in the context of international humanitarian and human rights law, is an important resource for making clear that the Wall’s illegality cannot be denied.
