'Aqqaba

Sunday, February 24, two hundred Jordan Valley activists protested against settler takeover of yet more of their land in Israel’s attempt to ethnically cleanse the area. Settlers had in the last days occupied land of the residents of al Aqaba, close to the Israeli military checkpoint at Tayaseer in the northern Jordan Valley.

Saturday, February 3, a Palestinian coalition started ‘Here we remain’ a new campaign against the Occupation in the West Bank. Activists from the Land Defense Coalition, in particular members of the Stop the Wall Campaign, Farmers Union, Jordan Valley Solidarity and the Palestine Youth Forum, gathered in the Village of Al Aqaba to start the planting of 13 000 olive trees.
