category mashriq / arabia / iraq | community struggles | news report author Tuesday May 07, 2013 00:41author by Ilan S. - AAtW, ainfos. Mazpenauthor email ilan at shalif dot comauthor address Tel Aviv Report this post to the editors

The transfer pressure in area C and the 1948 borders Negev intensifies. The colonialist settlers increase their terror, backed by the Israeli state forces. The increased popular struggle intensifies too and rightist calls for harsher repression are becoming louder. Not all those involved with the grassroots popular struggles are happy with the joint struggle together with Israelis, preferring to do without the relative immunity from harsher repression that we provide, and without our contribution for world public opinion. The ferment in the region has already decided that things will not be the same, but only popular struggle and international pressure will channel the changes to the better. [Italiano]

Bil'in

Friday 428th demo (3/5/2013) a wall's gate was torn down today at Bil'in - a repetition of a similar act a few years ago when the gate of the previous route of the separation fence was torn down: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=554267864617913
At that time, the gate was taken as a trophy and put in the center of the village.

Silwad

Happy to report Silwad, after a period of relative calm, is now awake and fiercely resisting the occupation and the theft of its lands by "settlers" from the nearby colony of Ofra. The resistance was sparked by the savage beating of a 60-year-old Silwad resident, Ahmad al-Zir, as he tended his land by Ofra colonists who fractured his skull with and iron bar leaving him unconscious and necessitating emergency surgery. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysZqJ2FxplE
Israeli settlers and Palestinian demonstrators throw stones at each other, after settlers marched into the lands of the West Bank villages of Deir Jarir and Silwad during a protest against construction on their land by members of the nearby Jewish settlement of Ofra on May 3, 2013.
