Walls Make Good Ghettos - Demonstration to Stop the Wall!

INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY MOVEMENT July 2, 2003 For Immediate Release

WALLS MAKE GOOD GHETTOS
Demonstration to Stop the Wall!

[Tulkarem Region, West Bank] Palestinians from 10 villages in the Tulkarem region will be joined by dozens of internationals from the International Solidarity Movement to stop the work on a section of the Separation Wall that, when completed, will totally isolate 3 villages: Baqa Sharqiya, Nazlit Issa, and Nazli Abu-Nar, from the rest of the West Bank, trapping over 6,000 Palestinians between a maximum security (electrified) fence and the Green Line.

In the Tulkarem area alone the construction of the Separation Wall has isolated 47,000 dunams (4 dunams

The International Solidarity Movement's Freedom Summer Palestine Campaign will focus on the Israeli occupation policy of denying Palestinians the freedom of movement, a basic right guaranteed to all people under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Palestinian civilians are forbidden to leave their towns and villages without special permission from the Israeli military. Roadblocks, checkpoints and now, the construction of the Separation Wall, have ghettoized Palestinian Bantustans. Palestinians and internationals will campaign to highlight the oppressiveness of Israeli occupation policies and bring to light the fact that, despite all the talks of a "Road Map", facts on the ground continue to be created to entrench the occupation, and Palestinian human rights continue to be violated.

DATE: Thursday July 3, 2003 TIME: 11AM (Meet at 10:30 at the Municipality) PLACE: Baqa Sharqiya (Tulkarem Region)
