Occupation

The legitimate and rightful weekly demonstration of the Palestinian continued this Friday against the occupation, the apartheid wall, & the settlements.

Youth and foreign solidarity activists in Nabi Saleh was wounded by rubber bullets, after Israeli occupation forces suppressed the protest march of the village, north-west of Ramallah, against the settlement and confiscation of Palestinian land.

GAZA, November 19, 2012 (WAFA) – The number of Palestinians who were killed in the ongoing Israeli attacks launched against the Gaza Strip for the Sixth day in a row since November 14 reached 90, with more than 900 injuries; mostly children, women and elderly.

Israeli air forces targeted al-Dallou family house in Nasser neighborhood, in the city of Gaza, killing 11 members of them. Ambulance crews pulled the bodies from under the rubble and recognized the dead as Sulafa, Samah and Tahani al-Dallou, 50, 25, 46, and Abdullah and Amena al-Mizner, 23, 83.

Motorola through its fully owned subsidiary Motorola Israel provides the Israeli state and its military with equipment employed in war crimes and contributes to the construction and maintenance of the Wall, the settlements and the checkpoints. The practices of Motorola clearly violate international law, including the IV Geneva Convention and the UN Covenant of Civil and Political Rights.

The second large scale Israeli public transport infrastructure project is now feeling the heat of BDS campaigners. The Israeli light rail project in Jerusalem has been since years targeted by BDS activists that support Palestinian calls for boycotts and divestments from companies that participate in this project, which links Israeli settlements to West Jerusalem and strengthens the Israeli grip on the occupied eastern part of the city.

Since Israel's establishment in 1948, its occupation of Jerusalem in June 1967, and subsequent annexation of the city in 1980, it has implemented policies that have shrunk the size of Occupied Jerusalem's Palestinian population as well as its Arab and Islamic heritage. The ongoing light rail project is just the latest in this steady entrenchment of Israeli control.

Villagers in Bil’in (west Ramallah district) burnt Occupation products during their weekly demonstration on the 21st of April, declaring their support for the internal boycott movement. Vowing to use only locally manufactured products, the villagers showed how Palestinians can break dependency on the Occupation’s economy, and revive the strategies of the First Intifada in the struggle for liberation.




***image2***Aboud village has been the site of increasingly large demonstrations since the local grassroots committee against the Wall declared every Friday a day of popular activities. 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.




***image2***A crowd of 150 people gathered in the village on Sunday November 20th and marched to their lands that will be isolated by the Wall. Since the first day when villagers stopped the Occupation bulldozers, the construction activities on the Wall have been halted on a daily basis. Not even the visit of the Occupation War Minister Mofaz to the surrounding settlements could ensure the completion of the work which aims to swallow Eizarya’s lands for the Ma`aleh Adumim colony.




***image2***A huge crowd of people gathered in front of Qalandiya refugee camp and marched against the Qalandiya gate chanting angry slogans against the Occupation and waving Palestinian flags. Occupation forces rushed to the area to block the protest from reaching the checkpoint.

***image2***Several villagers were left wounded as Occupation Forces attacked the village of Bili’n on Friday the 1st of July. Around 300 demonstrators marched to the lands stolen for the Apartheid Wall to be met be a brutal mixture of live ammunition, rubber bullets, sound bombs and tear gas. Clashes ensued for several hours as Palestinians responded to the Occupation violence with stones driving them out of the village.




***image2***Large demonstrations against the Apartheid Wall in the village of Bil’in marked the 38th anniversary of Al Naksa - the Occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip in 1967. Around a thousand protesters from villages throughout the district, and Bil’in itself, gathered on land that is being confiscated and destroyed for the construction of the Wall. The demonstration culminated in clashes and confrontations with the Occupation Forces, as people expressed their steadfast determination to resist the Apartheid Wall.

***image2***At the height of the anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa in the 1980s the call of the song “Senzeni Na – What Have We Done” was a common expression of exasperation at the cruelty and brutality of the apartheid regime. Across Palestine, the same words are uttered once again as the Occupation seeks to impose a final solution of apartheid, ghettoization and imprisonment upon the Palestinian people.

Mahmoud Hamamreh is from Husan village located in Bethlehem District. If the Wall is completed in this area, Husan will be completely encircled in a ghetto with Nahhalin and Battir villages. The Apartheid Wall runs directly into Mahmoud's house and continues on the other side, in a way, making his house a part of the Wall.



Mahmoud says:

Many South Asians imagine that the Israeli occupation of Palestine is as oppressive, intrusive and brutal, and as degrading, humiliating and dehumanising as colonial rule was in this part of the world, except that the present injustice has a religious dimension, in Zionism.

The Apartheid Wall, which began being built in the Occupied West Bank in June 2002, is nearly one third complete. It snakes its way deep inside the West Bank, devouring fertile land into de facto Israeli controlled areas, encircling residential areas, ghettoizing and imprisoning the Palestinian population.

Today, at 5:30 AM, the Occupation Military returned for the second day to the village of Budrus in the western Ramallah District, to continue razing land and uprooting trees for the Apartheid Wall that will encircle Budrus and its neighboring villages. The people of Budrus--women, men young and old, and children—joined together with people of the adjacent villages to confront the military and its bulldozers.

The Occupation Military started to clear and destroy the lands in Budrus, West Ramallah this morning, chopping and uprooting tens of olive trees to make way for the Apartheid Wall. While the Occupation Military had tried to destroy the land yesterday, the people in the village stood in front of the bulldozers, resisting the destruction and stopping them from clearing the land. However, the Occupation Military’s response was to threaten that they would impose a curfew on the entire village of 1200 people until the building of the Wall in the village was completed.
