With the conviction that our main contribution is not so much in changes on the ground but in the spirit of the struggle of the participants and the fulcrum we provide to the international lever. The gradual increase in international pressure which the Israeli high court verdict is that is a criminal act for Israeli to promote causing already much of damages in the economy of occupation and concern of the Zionist-colonialist Israeli ruling Elite. We see here again how small number of activists can initiate a turn in the course of history when it is applied in the ripe cross-road. It started in a small joint camp in Masha 2003 for struggle against the separation fence, after the idea raised half a year earlier in the European People Global Action conference in Leiden - in which activists from the East of the Mediterranean region participated too. The camp initiated struggles in various villages that riped at 2005 in the Bil'in struggle... which expanded and expanded...
The Friday demo of 10-4-15 - the most belligerent harassment of a Friday demonstration for years. An hour before the demo the Israeli state forces invaded the village and arrested one villager and confiscated a scouter. When we started the demo the state forces showered us with teat gas and invaded the village for a while for confrontation before they retreated to the old route of the separation fence. After a long while with low intensity of confrontation they went away and we dispersed. Surprisingly, no one was injured or arrested during the demonstration.
17-4-15 Bil'in today, dozen Israelis, dozens of internationals, and Palestinian activists of the west bank, joined more than 100 Bil'iners in the Friday demonstration against the separation wall and occupation, in the memory of Baasem Abu Rahme assassinated six years ago in the Friday demo in Bil'in and in solidarity with the Palestinian prisoners.
The Israeli state forces "allowed" us to march to a place near the gate in the wall, but when we arrived there they started to shower us with tear gas.
As the northern wind enabled the more stubborn demonstrators to remain in the lands, they restored to shooting of bullets rubbed with rubber and even live ammunition.
A sniper hit seriously one of the activist - Anas Mohamed Mansur age 17 who was taken to hospital.

Friday 10/04/2015 - Commemorating the battle in al-Qastel and the Deir Yassin massacre (1948), residents of the Ramallah-district village Nabi Saleh marched towards the military checkpoint at the entrance to the village.
