He spoke about the importance of popular struggle and resistance for the liberation of Palestine.

In Ni’lin and al-Ma’sra the Friday prayers and protests against the Wall have marked the beginning of the olive harvest. Although there are a few days remaining until the official start of the harvest season, farmers have begun picking olives in a number of villages across the West Bank. They have already been met with violence from soldiers and settlers, who are working collectively to drive the farmers off their land.

On Friday the 25th of November, a demonstration of around 700 villagers revealed the unity and determination of Aboud to halt the Apartheid Wall project that will isolate 5830 dunums of the village’s land.

A popular meeting took place in Biddu on April 30th, when members of popular committees against the Wall in Jenin and Qalqilya challenged the closures and separation of the West Bank imposed by the Occupation and managed to reach Biddu in North West Jerusalem. The participants from Jenin and Qalqilya came to express their solidarity with the people in Biddu, where the Wall is currently being built, and where five martyrs have been killed by the Occupation while resisting the Wall's construction.
