Palestine-Israel, The involvement of activists in the Israeli uprising was in parallel to the joint struggle ---- The Israeli uprising included also the Israeli Palestinian citizens. Within the social justice struggle, the anarchist against the wall were involved mainly in the Lewinski tent camp that included the African refugees and in the Jaffa Jewish-Palestinian tent camp. We continued - though with smaller numbers in the regular joint struggle with the occupied west bank villagers in Beit Ommar, Bil'in, Qaddom, Ma'asara, Nabi Saleh, Ni'ilin, South of Hebron hills, Wallaje. Both in Israel and the occupied regions the vibrations of the nearing 20th September UN declaration of the Palestinian state was in the air. [Italiano]

Bil'in demo September 2, 2011

Today, dozens of demonstrators suffered asphyxia during the weekly march organized by the Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements in Bil'in. Those participating included dozens of Palestinians dozens of international activists, and Israeli peace activists.

The march including 15 Israelis, few internationals and Bil'iners, began after Friday prayers. We started from the center of the village and headed to the Abu Lemon nature reserve located in the part of land that was restored lately after 6 years of struggle.

Upon the arrival of the demonstrators to the Abu Lemon preserve, we walked along the concrete wall and addressed the settlers through loudspeakers to leave the settlement and leave the Palestinian territories to Palestinians. During this, the occupation forces who were stationed behind the concrete wall fired tear gas at the participants. It also started fires in the land just restored. When the demonstrates arrived at the gate in the wall, soldiers came to our side and comrades confronted them for a while till we returned to the village.

An-Nabi-Salih 2-9-11

Some 60 Nabi Saleh residents and their international and Israeli supporters held on Friday the first weekly demonstration after Ramadan, demanding an end to the occupation and to the Oslo accords and peace processes that sustain it. The procession was able to reach outside of the village's built area and onto the hill that overlooks the village's spring, which is, along with the surrounding village's lands, threatened by settlers' annexation. Typically, at the time of the demo, these lands were foreclosed by the Israeli army and border police which began shooting tear gas from below and above the descending protesters. While the Israeli soldiers and police forces avoided for the most part from entering the village's built area, they did encircle that area and did not cease their habit of firing tear gas into that area, on and around houses, putting the village's population under attack and not allowing for peaceful demonstrating to take place. These measures were sure followed by clashes between the Israeli forces and unarmed civilians throwing stones in an attempt to ward off the military incursion. At a certain point the Israeli forces started shooting live ammunition above the heads of civilians. A few people were hit and injured by the many tear gas canisters shot during the long hours of a sunny day.
