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

With the passing of World Refugee Day on June 20th, we remember the Palestinian refugees both within the occupied territories and those dispersed around the world. At the same time resistance against the ongoing Nakba - the destruction of our homes and villages to dispossess and exile us - continues. The Sumoud Freedom Camp in the South Hebron hills is just one of our expressions of steadfastness.

From Israel’s apartheid Wall on Palestinian land to the US Wall of Shame on indigenous land at the border with Mexico – Walls are monuments of expulsion, exclusion, oppression, discrimination and exploitation. As people affected by these walls and as movements that pose justice, freedom and equality as our tools to resolve the problems of this planet, we join the call for the 9th of November as a Global Day of Action for a World without Walls.

After 41 days, the Palestinian Committee of Prisoners’ Affairs and Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) put out a joint statement that ‘Freedom and Dignity’ hunger strike has been suspended after more than 20 hours of negotiations. Palestinians have taken to the streets celebrating and singing in disbelief. It is still un-clear what the hunger strikers and the Israeli state have agreed upon.

The 37th Day of the Dignity and Freedom Hunger Strike had been declared as a Day of Rage in solidarity with the Palestinian prisoners and in protest against US president Trump’s visit to Bethlehem. Israeli military killed the third person since solidarity protests with the prisoners started.

Today marks the 32nd day of the freedom and dignity strike. As the hunger striking prisoners hold out - people in Palestine are being killed at checkpoints and on the streets.

During a march in solidarity with the hunger strikers that ended at Huwara checkpoint, Muataz Hussein Hilal Bani Shamsa, 23, from Beita (Nablus district) was shot in the head by an Israeli settler and succumbed to his wounds at the spot. Photographer Majdi Eshtayya was also injured with live ammunition shot by the settler and was transferred to Rafidiya Hospital. Many more have been injured by Israeli occupation forces during the ongoing protests of the last days.

To coincide with the International Day Against Torture, twenty-five prominent legal experts released a document demonstrating that the European Union-funded project LAW TRAIN breaches EU regulations and international law concerning human rights violations, and therefore must be stopped.

LAW TRAIN brings together the Israeli Police, the Israeli Ministry for Public Security (IMPS) and European police forces, universities and private companies with the aim of “harmonizing and sharing interrogation techniques between the countries”. The EU is funding this project with over 5 million euros, as part of its Horizon2020 programme for research and innovation.

The European Trade Union Initiative for Justice in Palestine, built as a coordination to take effective action to bring an end to Israel’s violation of international law, has released a powerful leaflet for unions and union activists to use all over Europe.

On the eve of May 1, they Initiative wants to focus on the European complicity to these violations through a leaflet, which you will find attached here in English, French and Dutch.

The European Trade Union Initiative for Justice in Palestine calls on trade unions to print and distribute this leaflet to its affiliates on May 1 and afterwards and to share it on websites and social media. This leaflet is preferably used as A5. You can also receive a design template if you want to translate the leaflet to your language.

As every year, BDS France protested Elbit System's presence at France's biggest military exhibition. The action took place by the Elbit Systems stall on Saturday 24, June, during the Paris Air Show. Elbit Systems is one of the main profiteers from Israel's apartheid Wall and wars against the Palestinian people and exports this expertise around the globe - including for the construction of the US Wall of Shame against the Mexican people.
