The Arab Spring seemed to accelerate the turning of the wheels of history immensely... but the momentum lost gradually and as much as the hope had risen so is the following passivity after the excitement dissipated. In the joint struggle of the anarchists against the wall and the popular comities we had our own surge when the joint struggle had it excitement of novelty and some victories, but it lost its momentum when the higher comity of the popular comities sailed to expand the popular struggle. When the excitement and surge ebb we can still find the company of comrades and lean together our shoulders on the wheels of history who turn to slow on their axes... and continue persistently the struggle (Tsumud). Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nabi Saleh, Qaddum, Ma'asara, Sheikh Jarrah, South of Hebron Hills and more keep the flame of the joint struggle. [Italiano]
Today's demonstration was attended by dozens of Palestinians, two dozen International activists and 6 Israelis with the anarchists against the wall initiative, who also stood in solidarity against the attacks in Gaza last night as well as the illegal wall and occupation.
Three were injured in the non armed Bil’in’s weekly demonstration. Two people were shot with rubber coated bullets and a third person was seriously injured in the leg by a live bullet.
The demonstration enjoyed a relatively large international presence, and the shabab agreed to put their stones down, and let the guests see what happens when they do not fight back. The marchers reached the gate and gathered there chanting. The wind was blowing toward the soldiers, so they couldn't use gas. Instead, they took about one minute to start shooting bullets at the peaceful demonstrators. One demonstrator was hit in his pants pocket. The shabab then started to fight back with stones, and soon enough, one of them was hit in his leg with a live 0.22 bullet, which the army itself prohibits from use in demonstrations because of its lethal history. The demonstrators retreated, and later regrouped along the southern wall, to be followed by an army invasion and a chase to the outskirts of the built area of the village. The injured demonstrator was released from hospital later that day.
