Stop the Wall

The Stop the Wall Campaign’s aim to tear down the Wall is aligned with the Palestinian desire for liberation—for those of us inside and in exile, the young and old, those who have died, and those yet to be born.

We are a grassroots movement uniting the struggle of the popular committees in the villages, refugee camps and cities struggling against the Wall and the settlements and the efforts of Palestinian civil society.  

Our call is to:

  • Stop the Wall

  • Dismantle parts already built

  • Return all lands confiscated for the Wall

  • Compensate for all losses.

The Latest From Palestine

Tens of armed Israeli soldiers raided the home of Mahmoud Nawajaa, the General Coordinator of the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC), Palestine’s largest civil society coalition on  Thursday, July 30ths. They arrested Mahmoud one day before the Al-Adha Eid celebrations. On Al-Adha Eid Day, Ruba Elaian, Mahmoud’s wife, expressed her sorrow at the absence of Mahmoud stating: “On the eve of Eid Al-Adha, the Israeli occupation forces raided our home, which we settled in only two weeks ago. We have not yet finished arranging our furniture, and our children’s games, nor our dreams. It is not strange for them to violate the sanctuaries of safe houses and intimidate Palestinians without the right to do so and without the slightest sense of humanity.

At about 1:00 AM on Wednesday, around fifty heavily armed Israeli soldiers surrounded the home of Abu Saqr with their military jeeps and arrested him and his twenty-two-year old son, Sakher. An hour before the detention of Abu Saqr and Sakher, Israeli soldiers raided the home of Ashraf, Abu Saqr’s son-in-law and a father of four young children and arrested him. Later on, they were accused of ‘stealing water’, which Israel’s national water company Mekorot illegally appropriates from Palestinians to serve, among others, Israel’s settlement project. After a grueling 20 hours in detention, without food or water, all three have been freed for now.

“Walls in Times of Pandemic” - is an online exhibit that has been preparared thanks to the contributions of many movements across the globe, from the Philippines to Mexico. It gives fragments of reality, traces connections and gives inspirations of struggle.

Over one thousand people marked the 16th anniversary of the ruling of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on the illegality of the Wall and the obligation of the international community to act in order to stop it and end Israel’s violation of international law.

People gathered to protest Israel’s impending plans to formalize the annexation of up to 30% of the West Bank, which would leave them completely isolated in their villages behind the wall in ‘annexed’ land and without rights.

Yesterday, Friday July 3rd, was a day of rage and unification of struggle as Palestinians in five different areas across the West Bank united to rise up against the de jure annexation of large swaths of occupied West Bank. Palestinians see in the looming de jure annexation of their lands, a move backed by the US administration, a solidification of Israel’s settler colonial and apartheid regime subjugating them and obliterating their existence on their land since seven decades.

New Resources

Stop the Wall factsheet "Cutting the lifeline - Stop the Annexation of Palestinian water" highlights the strategic importance Israel gives to the usurpation and pillage of Palestinian water resources in its efforts to colonize and annex large parts of the West Bank. It further highlights the impact the proposed annexation plans will have on access to water and how they are building upon the pre-existing structure of water apartheid built by Israel over decades. 

Stop the Wall released the most detailed map as of today of Trump’s Peace to Prosperity plan, including a commentary. It shows the real impact of this ‘masterplan’ -  vision fully designed on the basis of Israel’s pre-existing annexation plans. 

With the possible annexation of 33% of the West Bank, over 75 Palestinian villages, Bedouin and semi-Bedouin communities are to be annexed, with a total population of 118 000. They are to be annexed yet denied full citizen rights. The segregated transportation system will be expanded, most of the water resources inaccessible and agriculture impossible as most arable land will be annexed.

It becomes evident how the endless human rights violations by Israel, including the wall, the settlements, home demolitions, land confiscations, humiliating checkpoints and denial of access to water, have always been measures of de facto annexation to prepare for this masterplan.
