Prison Breakout!

Prison Breakout!

Palestinians demand an end to West Bank ghettoization.

[Jbarra, Tulkarem Region] Palestinians, Internationals and Israelis will congregate on Saturday 25th October, 10.30 a.m. at a northern checkpoint of the Wall to take action against the imprisonment of Palestinian communities and demand an end to the policies of occupation that cage, choke and humiliate the Palestinian people. As Israel escalates action to create the world's largest ghetto, Israeli citizens are becoming complicit in war crimes and the international community is silent in the face of a great crime against humanity. Palestinian and Israeli civilians, joined by peace activists from the international community will come together to challenge this violation of international law and human rights.

With the completion of the wall's first stage, Israel has transformed Palestinian villages into prisons and cities into ghettos. In the village of Jbarra, located on the western side of the Wall, between the Wall and the Green Line, Israeli soldiers regularly force children traveling to and from school to wait for hours at the gate. The majority of villagers have not been allowed to leave Jbarra for weeks regardless of work and family commitments. In Qalqilya, Israeli soldiers control the only entry/exit point, imprisoning 42,000 people within the Wall. The city of Tulkarem will soon face the same reality.

WHAT: Action against the Wall

DATE: Saturday, October 25, 2003

TIME: 10:30AM

PLACE: Jbarra (please call for directions)
