9th – 16th Of November 2006:4th National & International Week Against The Apartheid Wall


9th –
16th Of November 2006:


4th National & International Week Against The Apartheid Wall


“We Shall Stay

Generation after Generation
Defiant and Steadfast until Liberation”


As the ghetto walls close around our people, the voice of the Palestinian and Arab
resistance continues to echo within the Bantustans and beyond.

This
year’s week against the Apartheid Wall is all dedicated to the olive
harvest. The struggle for the fruits of the olive trees – our livelihood
and our roots in the land – has become the core of resistance in the
communities isolated from their lands by the Wall and choked by Zionist
colonialism.

After years of siege and sanctions, the olive harvest is a struggle for
existence, for the livelihood of the year to come, for our land that bears
its fruits for us, for our right to exist in Freedom, Justice and
Equality.


Palestine:

The Anti-Apartheid
Wall Campaign and the popular committees are working on a comprehensive
programme of action and coordination:

  • Protests at the gates
    and
    confrontations with the Occupiers
    that bar the people from reaching their
    land have already begun in Salfit and Tulkarem district

  • Almost 200
    student volunteers
    have been distributed in crucial areas across the West
    Bank to support the olive harvest

  • Some 250
    international volunteers
    will be distributed throughout the olive season.


  • Media alerts

    calling for unity against the Apartheid Wall and to let the people know how to
    join in and report attacks and resistance.


  • Daily reports on the struggle against Israeli
    assaults
    during the olive season are distributed in the media and through
    the Campaign coordinators

    Al-Awda New York organizes a film screening and discussion in commemoration of
    the Week of Resistance Against the Apartheid Wall

     


    Date: November 15


    Time: 7.30 pm


    Place: Alwan For the Arts, 16 Beaver Street (b/n Broad & Broadway), 4th Floor


    Programme: screening of PALESTINE BLUES (80min) followed by a question & answer
    session with  award winning filmmaker & renowned Palestinian artist and
    sculpturist Nida Sinnokrot.


    "Palestine Blues follows the repercussions of the [Zionist Apartheid Wall] and
    Settlement expansion in the engulfed/annexed Palestinian farming communities of
    the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Instead of focusing on the object of the Wall,
    this documentary examines the grassroots resistance movement that has sprung up
    against it. Palestine Blues is not a "traditional" political reportage but
    rather an interminable road trip across hard and liquid borders, across a
    terrain that is being erased as it is being traversed."

    Activists in New York organize a slideshow and report-back by members of DRUM (Desis
    Rising Up & Moving) who will share their first-hand accounts of the wall in
    Palestine and Arizona from a recent visit. The event aims to show how the fight
    against racist travel bans, the fight for dignity, and the fight against
    militarized borders link the struggle for immigrant rights in the U.S. to the
    struggle for freedom in Palestine.


    After the event, a march is planned to bring the Wall to the streets of New
    York.
