Protests

Stop the Wall has sent an urgent complaint to UN Special Rapporteurs and diplomatic missions urging them to further investigate the Israeli repression of human rights defenders and to make 2012 the year in which they finally hold Israel accountable for these and other crimes. There is a clear pattern of escalation of Israeli repression developing and we call the international community to urgently take effective measures.

 

Nabi Saleh, West Bank – Palestinian activist Mustafa Tamimi, 28, died this morning of wounds sustained after the Israeli occupation forces shot him in the face on Friday at the weekly popular protest in Nabi Saleh. Tamimi was shot from less than 10-meters distance with a high velocity tear gas grenade that made him unconscious and bleeding profusely. He was then taken to hospital where he remained in life support until this morning. The Israeli occupation forces prevented his family from accompanying him.

Stop the Wall is organizing three demonstrations to add to the weekly Friday activities against the Wall in the different villages:

The demonstration takes place to commemorate the massacre of the people of al Sammou, south of Hebron. Exactly 45 years ago, on November 13 1966 Israeli forces raided this village, destroyed 125 houses, the village clinic and school as well as 15 houses in a neighboring village. 18 people were killed and 54 wounded.

Today, Eid al Adhar, the most important holiday in the Muslim calendar, Israel attempted a take over of the Al Aqsa mosque in its ongoing policy to Judaize Jerusalem. Yet, tens of thousands of Palestinians gathered for prayers at the Mosque defended their holy places, rights and dignity.

The Palestinian BDS movement staged a peaceful demonstration at the Ofar trading checkpoint in Ramallah, West Bank, Palestine was conducted on August 5th, 2019. The purpose was to boycott the cheap Israeli goods being flooded into the Palestinian economy while Israel imposes high tariffs on Palestinian goods, if they allow the goods to cross the checkpoints within the occupied West Bank, so that they can be exported or even transported from one city to the other, to begin with. These illegal actions are purposefully damaging to the Palestinian economy, and are an example of neo-colonial economic strategy. 

The second Friday in a row, people gathered in protest on the rubbles of the buildings that until two weeks ago were the homes of hundreds of Palestinian families that are to be ethnically cleansed by Israel. Across Israel's apartheid Wall more activists gathered to show unity and support for the steadfastness of the residents. Wadi Hummus will survive!

On May 17, for the 5th year in a row the Land Defense Coalition organized together with the Falestiniyat movement, formed by Palestinians inside the Green Line the commemoration of Tantura Massacre."Everyone felt for one moment that Tantura was liberated that evening and return had been achieved".

Stop the Wall participated in and organized a number of activities to commemorate 71 years since the Nakba (arabic for ‘catastrophe’), the mass expulsion of the Palestinian people from their homes and lands, started. Beyond national actions, the youth reaffirmed their commitment to return and Saffa remembered those killed in the battles to defend the village.

On Friday, February 22, Palestinians organized a mass protest to remember the 25th anniversary of the Massacre of the Ibrahimi Mosque and to protest the ongoing segregation, repression and dispossession of the Palestinian population in Hebron at the hands of the Israeli military and the illegal settlers in the city.

Beginning of the year, Israel's minister for 'strategic affairs' had called for the treatment Palestinian prisoners are suffering in Israeli jails to be even worsened. As raids inside the prisons are increasing, inmates are injured or even dying, Stop the Wall joins the Palestinian Higher Committee for Prisoners Affairs for regular protests in support of the over 5000 Palestinians in Israeli prisons.

This Friday the village of al Mughayyir stood up together with grassroots movements and activists to fight back against deadly settler violence. Last Saturday settlers murdered 38-years old Hamdi Saadeh Naasan and injured many more when they invaded the village.

Palestinian grassroots movements organized the first bloackade of the newly opened apartheid road, east of Jerusalem. On January 23, activists blockaded the entrance gates to the 5km stretch of road, walled-off in the middle to segregate Palestinians.

This year started with continuous, popular protests across the West Bank and with actions of solidarity between the people to strengthen the steadfastness of those in the frontlines of the Israeli attacks. As Israel attempts to push forward its policies of expulsion and apartheid in the occupied West Bank, resistance continues and grows from community to community. 

People in Ramallah have taken to the streets in protest over Israel's brutal military escalation against the Gaza Strip that has killed already 15 Palestinians, injured scores and wrecked havock over the already besieged Strip.
STEP UP CAMPAIGNING FOR A #MILITARYEMBARGO NOW!

Over 200 people gathered at Khan al Ahmar to let Israeli military know that collective struggle will defend the community from any demolitions Israel is planning. Occupation forces closed the access roads to Khan al Ahmar, nevertheless many went marching on foot to join the protest.

Yesterday night, Palestinian activists have started yet another strategy to resist the erasure of the community of Khan al Ahmar by Israeli occupation forces: Five new structures have been built in the middle of the night just a few hundred meters from the existing structures, as a new ‘neighbourhood’. In order to demolish the structures, new legal procedures have to be started in the courts…

After Israeli courts have decided on the imminent destruction of Khan al Ahmar, the Palestinian Bedouin community located East of Jerusalem, popular resistance is building to defend the community. 

After years of resistance and a month of legal battles, as expected the Israeli courts voted in favour of ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian Bedouin community. In exactly one week, Khan al Ahmar is up for destruction. Click below and help us stop the demolition. 

On Monday, the Israeli High Court issued a decision to delay the demolition of Khan Al-Ahmar, the Palestinian Bedouin Community East of Jerusalem until July 17.

Palestinian lawyers representing the residents of Khan al-Ahmar village in the West Bank filed a petition last week, claiming that no eviction orders had been given to the residents.

The community of Khan al Ahmar and the popular resistance in Palestine has won a small but significant battle against Israeli ethnic cleansing. The occupation forces have to stop their onslaught until July 11. Your action is crucial now! 

Since yesterday, Israeli bulldozers and some 300 Israeli military and intelligence officers have started the full scale onslaught to destroy the Bedouin community of Khan el Ahmar. People are still resisting and need your support! 

On Wednesday, June 27, youth movements and other popular forces have joined in a protest in Tulkarem to reiterate the call of the Palestinian people on the Palestinian Authority to lift the sanctions from Gaza. See the video here. 

On Saturday afternoon, for the third time in the last weeks, masses poured on the streets of Ramallah to demand from the Palestinian Authority (PA) to immediately end their own sanctions on Gaza that compound the horrific Israeli siege. The police brutality last week has not weakened the resolve of the people - more people came out on the street with more resolve and PA forces trying to make amends.
