Palestinian Grassroots Anti-apartheid Wall Campaign

In July 2003, families from Jayyus, a village east if Qalqiliya, began sleeping in tents on their land which has been isolated by the Apartheid Wall—the area which is being de facto annexed by Israel.

Some 300 families have lost their only source of income.
