The clash that has lately been going on in Ramalla between the Palestinian Authority police and strikers' demonstration of employees of the United Nations agency stresses it again: the activists of the Anarchists Against the Wall initiative and many of the internationals and even many Palestinians are joining the struggle against the occupation and the settler project period. The expectations from a Palestinian state are low and marginal, and very few have any illusions about the expected freedom in the "free Palestine" they chant. The intensifying international pressure on Israel brings hesitant hopes about the nearing changes in the region. And the joint struggle continues in Bil'in, Ni'lin, Nabi Saleh, Qaddum, Ma'sara, Sheikh Jarrah, and the South Hebron Hills, with hesitant contemplations of joining from other villages. [Italiano]
The South West Bank Committee organized today a protest in front of the illegal El Azar colony, South Bethlehem, the activists blocked the main entrance of the illegal colony and were then attacked by the colony's security together with Israeli occupation soldiers and police. Later, after the protest, the activists planted 100 olive trees in the endangered land adjacent to the illegal colony of El Azar. The activists were attacked again by the Israeli occupation soldiers and police who tried to prevent the planting activity, 13 January, 2014.
Weekly Friday demonstration 10.01.14.
17 Israelis, a dozen internationals, and about 30 Bil'iners participated. We marched chanting to the gate in the wall.
Surprisingly the state forces refrained from harassing us till activists tried to close the outer gate of the fence "protecting" the wall. Even then they just threw some sound grenades. Only when the demo there was declared closed did the tear gas shooting at the shabab youth start and the confrontation with them intensify.
After a long while the adults returned to the village while the shabab continued the confrontation with the Israeli force.
Today we were half a dozen Israelis, two dozen internationals and two dozen Biliners. The fucked state force were exceptionaly passive and started to shower us with tear gas only after the demo end was declared. Among the flags were two redNblack ones.

"We are all with Yarmouk," chanted participants in the weekly Friday demonstration in the village of Nabi Saleh. Palestinians accompanied by Israeli and international solidarity activists marched today from Martyrs Square at the center of the village towards Nabi Saleh's expropriated lands, as the IOF attempted to dispersed them using tear gas canisters, rubber coated steel bullets and stun grenades. A few protesters were lightly injured and required medical assistance at the scene.

Negev Bedouins and their supporters from all over the country will demonstrate tomorrow, Thur. Jan. 9 2014, outside premises of the "Bedouin Resettlement Authority" in Be'er Sheva (Reger Blvd. corner of Messada St.) at 10:00am. Demonstrators will express outright opposition to the government's ongoing promotion of the "Prawer Plan" which implies destruction of dozens of villages and expulsion of tens of thousands of Bedouins from their homes and land. Implementation of the plan is now entrusted to the hard-liner Yair Shamir, Minister of Agriculture.

On the "Social Justice" assembly in Rabin (city) Square activists of the "Not-Nice" initiative and members of the anarcho-communist "Unity" group tried to take over the stage and prevent MK Ilan Gilon from speaking, following the refusal of the organizers to allow common people, and social organizations - "Not-Nice", "Unity" and Representatives of the autistic community, to speak. The."left authoritarians" showed their real face and screamed for police help to calm the angry activists.
