Another protest camp to block the Wall

Another protest camp to block the Wall

Camp against the thievery of land Another tent goes up to block the Wall

Monday July 7, 2003, another solidarity camp went up in the West Bank in protest over the thievery of land and in an attempt to stop the apartheid wall being built by the government of Israel. Citizens from the USA, Sweden, France, the UK joined Palestinian villagers as they set up a peace camp in the village Arrabony in the north of the West Bank.

Arrabony is a village by the northern border of the occupied West Bank, 8 km northeast of Jenin, with around 900 inhabitants. This small village is another one of dozens of Palestinian villages, towns and cities that will be affected with lands stolen and the livelihood of inhabitants devastated, by Israel's Apartheid Wall. With the wall complete 800 dunums of land will be confiscated from the people of Arrabony, leaving approximately 2000 dunums in the hands of the villagers.

International volunteers from the USA, the UK, France, and Sweden together with the village's inhabitants set up a peace camp in Arrabony, in the path of the wall's construction, in protest, and will follow with non-violent direct actions targeting the construction-work in the whole northern Jenin-area.

Similar protest tents have been set up and are maintained in Deir Ghosoon (Tulkarem region), Mas'ha (Salfit region) and Jayyous (Qalqilya region), where farmers are camping out on their land, which has already been isolated from them.

We invite all people to join us in one of these areas against the confiscation of land and the creation of Palestinian ghettos, and we invite journalists not to ignore the voices of the people and the devastating facts that Israel continues to create on the ground, despite talks about peace and a "roadmap".
