The joint struggle picked a new momentum. On Sunday 11-11-12 the general commanding the center of the west bank declared the Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nabi Saleh, and Quaddum locations of joint Friday demos as closed military regions for our activists on Fridays. On Wednesday we expressed our defiance by joining the initiative of the general comity of the local grass root comities. The war on Gaza flared Wednesday afternoon and the anarchists against the wall activists joined the demos in the various locations in Israel.

Direct actions Wednesday organized by the higher comity of the grass root comities involved with the joint struggle. About 20 Israelis of the anarchists against the wall, dozens of internationals and Palestinians from the various villages in blocking main roads built for the settler colonialist. In about half a dozen locations blocking for about half an hour was achieved. State force used tear gas in one location. Angry settler tried in vain to confront the blockers. Two were de-arrested. Non was taken.
"All over the West Bank Palestinians took out to a day of protest action, to mark Palestinian independence day. In Ramallah area 7 roads leading to military checkpoints and settlements were blocked by hundreds of Palestinian activists accompanied by internationals and Israelis.In some cases the roads were blocked with chains and locked, and traffic was held for long moments. The army responded with shooting tear gas at the protestors."

Today, a coalition of activists in Beit Ommar including the Center for Freedom and Justice, Palestine Solidarity Project, members of the Popular Committee and a new youth group Youth Power of Palestine (find them on facebook) organized an emergency demonstration in Beit Ommar in solidarity with the people of Gaza. Over 100 people, all Palestinian, marched from the center of town to the Israeli military watch tower at the entrance to the town. They were met by a large Israeli military force which shot tear gas, sound grenades, and rubber-coated steel bullets at the demonstration. For over 2 hours, the group stayed near the entrance to the village, protesting Israeli aggression and occupation. Israeli soldiers took up posts on the roofs of Palestinian homes and continued to shoot tear gas throughout the town.

Bil'in

The Bil'in Friday weekly march organized by the Popular Committee Against the Wall in Bil'in 16-11-2012 in the twenty-fourth anniversary of the declaration of Independence. The march came in solidarity with our people in Gaza against the brutal Israeli aggression against them. Participated in the march along with the people of Bil'in many internationals and about 50 Israelis protesting this way the refuting of the new ban on their participation in the joint struggle and the war.
Upon the arrival of the participants to Abu Lemon area adjacent to the wall, they were able to break through the barbed wire and uprooted some of its posts. Some of the demonstrators climbed the concrete wall and waved Palestinian flags on it. They burned dozens of tires which led to a big cloud of smoke carried by the wind along the wall and part of it passed to the other side - to the soldiers and to the settler colonialist town. The Israeli soldiers who were situated behind the wall fired tear gas, sound bombs, coated rubber bullets, and they also sprayed wastewater mixed with stinking chemicals toward demonstrators. The angry youth threw stones at the Israeli soldiers.
Two citizens were injured in addition to dozens of cases suffocated from tear gas in Bil'in weekly march. Ahmad Adib Abo Rahmh (12 years) was hit by a rubber bullet in his back, and his father Adeeb Abu Rahma (41years) by a tear gas canister in the leg as well as dozens of demonstrators suffering from the inhalation of tear gas. All of them were treated in the field by ambulance crews.
