Last Friday in Bil'in - the 426th demo of which I have participated in more than 400. As usual we were shot at with tear gas grenades and canisters, part of which I had to evade as they were shot in my direction. Part of the tear gas of the others I mostly evaded too. Now, on my chair in front of the computer I am taunted with the thought that I and scores of Israeli activists of the Anarchists Against the Wall initiative and others who participate in the joint struggle just got used to being shot at week after week. Some who are less lucky or less agile have taken more punishment than me... The Israeli media is used to it too, reporting on the shooting and us and the Palestinian partners as if it is just the weather. The banality of evil is the prevailing character of Israel these days, reminding more and more people of places and occurrences of other countries in other times. [Italiano]

Burning a tractor load of tires at the gate in the nearby Apartheid-Annexation Wall where occupation soldiers regularly exit to attack protesters at the Friday demonstrations, harass farmers and youths and mount terror raids on the long suffering village. Sky lanterns were also released at the spot where he was mercilessly cut down by a occupation soldier who deliberately shot a high velocity tear gas projectile into his chest and also at his grave in the center of the village. Afterwards his mother was visited to commiserate and to honor Bassem and his sister Jawaher who died from the effects of toxic tear gas at a Friday demonstration.

Nabi Saleh

Friday - 19/04/2013 - During the weekly demonstration against the occupation and in support of political prisoners, Palestinian, Israeli and international activists marched down the main road connecting Nabi Saleh with its neighboring villages and with Ramallah. Among the participants were a visiting group from Brazil as well as Judy Montell, the mother of Betselem director, who came to interview volunteers in the documentation project. The IOF attacked the march with tear gas and rubber coated steel bullets, as well as putrid skunk water. Moreover, the skunk truck then chased protesters into the village, spraying fowl smelling liquid all over residential homes. Soldiers physically assaulted two of the villagers as well we one Israeli activists, while many suffocated because of the tear gas.
