Action Alert - Support the Village of Budrus


Action Alert - Support the Village of Budrus

The Israeli DCO reported that on Monday, December 29 (today) at 10 AM the trees belonging to the village of Budrus (Ramallah District) would be uprooted and the land cleared for construction of the Apartheid Wall. Prior to 10 AM this morning, the people of Budrus marched alongside 15 international and Israeli activists to the site of the proposed land destruction. This act succeeded in turning away the Israeli soldiers and border police officers that were in Budrus to monitor the situation, but the activists were told that curfew would be imposed upon Budrus for one week starting tonight if the construction workers were not allowed to complete their work.

Construction of the wall began approximately 1 1/2 months ago in Budrus with the clearing of larger stones in the proposed path of the Wall. The people of Budrus successfully stopped several attempts of the workers to uproot their trees by using non-violent acts of resistance, including weekly actions against the Wall.

Please take action! The community of Budrus, international activists from the International Women's Peace Service and International Solidarity Movement, and Israeli activists are calling upon all activists to come and join Budrus in its struggle against the Wall.
