This new map shows the devastating path of the Apartheid Wall through the Ar Ram area, which is currently the Palestinian gateway between Jerusalem and Ramallah. Though construction first began in the area last February, the recent days have marked a heightened urgency in resistance to the Wall’s construction in this area, as Occupation Forces have been quickly pulling up roads, blocking access and tightening their grip on Ar Ram.

Today marks 37 years since the Naksa, or the Occupation of the West Bank (including east Jerusalem) and the Gaza Strip – all that remained of Palestine after the Nakba in 1948 – and today’s demonstration demanded an end to the Occupation, and freedom for all of Palestine. To mark the occassion hundreds of Palestinians from the Ar Ram and Dahiat Al Barid neighborhoods demonstrated against the Apartheid Wall that is planned to be built around the two suburbs, isolating them from Jerusalem, marching from the centre of Ar Ram to the Dahiat Al Barid checkpoint.

15 May 2004 will see yet another commemoration of the Nakba [Cataclysm]. And a cataclysm it truly was.
