The response by the public was very positive. By touring about 2000 kilometers a large amount of people could see the campaign.

The Wall Caravan was a co-project of the Netherlands Palestine Committee and ‘Sloop de Muur’ (Tear Down the Wall â SloopdeMur) with local support from activists across the country. At each stop signatures were collected for an action to force the Dutch Parliament to discuss the issue of sanctions against Israel, since it failed so far to seriously do so in spite of the ICJ verdict. The parliament is obliged to put any civic initiative on the agenda, if supported by at least 40,000 signatures. We are now more than halfway getting a firm boost this past actionweek.
Flyers used mentioned the detained political/human rights activists (specially Abdallah Abu Rahmah) and had a firm focus on the BDS Campaign (the three BNC demands).
Slogans used on the âWall Caravanâ were:
* Stop Israeli Apartheid! Boycott Israel!
Didn’t get to school? The Wall was closed!
ICJ: in The Hague The Wall is illegal
* Tear down the Apartheid Wall in Palestine
In solidarity, on behalf of Netherlands Palestine Committee and ‘Sloop de Muur’ (Tear Down the Wall)
