Every day for the last few weeks Occupation forces have been working to clear the lands northwest of Jerusalem for the Apartheid Wall, and every day the villagers of Beit Duqqu, among many others have stood together on their lands trying to stop the senseless destruction.

***image2***Today, for the third consecutive day, hundreds of Palestinians demonstrated in Budrus, west of Ramallah to resist the construction of the Apartheid Wall. The demonstration started at 10:30 a.m. when demonstrators from Budrus, as well as the nearby villages of Qibya, Ni’lin, and Midya, headed towards their lands where occupation bulldozers have already begun uprooting trees and clearing land to make way for the Wall. The protestors sat in the land until 11:00 a.m.

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.

Over 1,000 residents of encaged Qalqiliya City demonstrated on Saturday, December 27, against the Apartheid Wall which has encircled the city for over one year. The demonstrators met in Martyr Abu Ali Eyad Square in the city center and marched towards the southern entrance of the city which is closed off by the 8-meter high concrete Wall which towers over the area and surrounds the entire city.

November 9th, the International Day against the Wall, was declared by communities devastated by the Wall in the northern West Bank during an organizing meeting of the Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign in June 2002. The goal of the day, which coincided with the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, was to highlight the Palestinian-led struggle for the fall of the Apartheid Wall.

In Ramallah on Nov 9th over 2,000 Palestinian shut down the city streets and central area, the Manara, to demand the destruction of the Wall as part of the national and international day against the Apartheid Wall. Participants included residents from the city and surrounding villages, representative from political parties, organizers and students. The following images are from the march and speaking event which followed.

On Tuesday October 6th, the Municipality of Jayyus, a village in the Qalqiliya district which is separated from 72% of its land by the Wall, sent out an appeal for support for residents’ to reach their land. There are two “access gates” in Jayyus which are claimed by the Israeli military to be for farmers to reach land on the “other side” of the Wall; however, the gates are a means by which Israel seeks to legitimize the Wall and confiscation of Palestinian land and intensify the humiliation which Palestinians suffer under all aspects of the Occupation.
