***image2***Hundreds of people from the village of Qattana demonstrated today against the Apartheid Wall currently being constructed on their lands. Palestinians from the neighboring villages of Biddu and Beit Surik joined the villagers of Qattana. The demonstration began shortly after Friday prayers, with the villagers walking together towards lands already cleared for the Wallâs path. On the march villagers raised the Palestinian flag, and called for a stop to the Wall.
