Palestine-Israel The joint struggle expand while the political scene is very tense
The joint struggle continue this week with wounds of Anata pogrom by of duty settler colonialists of the state forces living in Anatot still hurting. The state force officers on duty but did nothing to prevent it...banned the Friday demonstration at the site. The tension around the return of the war prisoner Gilad Shavit and release of 1000 Palestinians in return were subject most talked. In regular Friday demos and in special ones near Ofer concentration camp solidarity with prisoners was prominent. The season of olive picking started few days ago increased involvement of Israeli activists in the protection farmers from harassment by settler colonialists. The usual locations of Arakib Beit Umar, Bil'in, Ma'asara, Nabi Saleh, Ni'ilin, Sheikh Jarrah, were joined by Jayus. The activity of the High Follow up Committee of the popular grass root comities collect momentum and involve coordinating of multi location demonstrations. [Italiano]
This Friday, October 14th, 2:00 PM – We will demonstrate again in the entrance of Anatot.
Anatot’s settlers trying now to portray themselves as a peaceful community, a ‘quality of life’ settlement. Only that their settlement and the lands they expropriated are surrounded by a fence which its route was illegally obtained . Real estate interests are mixed with the aspiration to execute a peaceful transfer to the local inhabitants. Trying to create a new reality from which there will be no option to turn back.
Over the years Anatot became a fortress terrorizing its surrounding. The people of Anatot fear nothing more then the story of how they plunder the lands, upon which they built their ‘quality of life’ settlement, will come to light. This is the reason why the mere act of a Palestinian farmer trying to work his land, alongside a group of activists who documented the event, were perceived by the settlers as a real threat, that might put the reality they were trying to built under danger of collapsing.
However, it is not only the case of Anatot. The story of Anatot is to a great extent the story of the State of Israel. The demo was banned using closed military zone trick.

Hi all. As you know, Palestinian prisoners associated with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) began a hunger strike on September 27 against the worsening of conditions imposed on prisoners by the Israeli government. Since then, prisoners from Hamas, Fatah, Islamic Jihad and the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) have also joined the strike.
The popular struggle coordination committee and others are organizing a vigil in solidarity with the hunger strikers tomorrow (11-10) at 12:00 P.M in front of Ofer military prison (the Palestinian side). Along the week protests were also at Beit Ola, Sosya in Yatta.
