Palestinian Grassroots Anti-apartheid Wall Campaign

This factsheet highlights the history and struggle of Ni’lin. The village is located in the West Bank, 26 KM to the west of Ramallah city. The village of Ni’lin has become a site of active struggle against the Apartheid Wall. Frequent protests and confrontations between villagers and Occupation soldiers are staged on the site where bulldozers are razing land to build the latest segment of the Wall.

The Wall is just the latest land grab. Confiscations over the last 60 years left Ni’lin with just 10,000 of its original 58,000 dunums of land. Construction of the Apartheid Wall on the western side of the village and a military base on the southern side will strip Ni’lin of a further 2,500 dunums of land.
