Protesting Against Destruction Of Communities
Villagers Unite To Protest The Destruction Of Their Communities
Israelis and Internationals Support Villages Coming Together in Resistance
[Beit Surik, Occuiped Jerusalem] On Friday February 20, hundreds of Palestinians from six villages northwest of Jerusalem will gather at the Boys' School of Beit Surik at 1:00 PM to march against the planned path of the Wall in this region. International and Israeli peace activists will join the Palestinians in their demonstration calling on the international community to intervene to stop the destruction of their land and livelihood and to bring down Israel's Wall of Apartheid. The demonstration comes only three days before the International Court of Justice is set to rule on the legality of the Wall at The Hague.
The path of the Apartheid Wall in this region will cut off Beit Surik, Biddu, Beit Ijsa, Al Qubbaiba, Qatanna, and Beit Duqqu from their land and water resources and eventually lead to the destruction of these communities as they are mostly comprised of farmers. 90% of Beit Surik's land will be isolated from the village and de-facto annexed into Israel by the construction of Apartheid Wall; old houses will be destroyed and the villagers will be stripped of three major water resources, which will leave them no choice but to leave their village.
Your presence will help us to stop
the destruction of Palestinian communities.
