Massive Demonstrations throughout Palestine


The Wall Must Fall! Massive Demonstrations throughout Occupied Palestine

Occupied Palestine - - As the hearings concerning the legality of the Wall started in The Hague, thousands of Palestinians and Internationals throughout Occupied Palestine took on the streets to protest the construction of the Wall of Apartheid.

The International Solidarity Movement joined massive popular protests to support the active resistance of the Palestinians against this violation of basic human rights, and their ongoing fight for freedom, justice and peace.

In every regions, demonstrations endured severe attacks by the Israeli army. Tear gas and rubber bullets and in some places live ammunitions were fired at the crowd, wounding tens of Palestinians.

The IOF attempted to prevent these demonstrations from taking place by denying entry in the West Bank, making it difficult for Israeli peace activists to join the protests.

Below is the press release from the Palestinian grassroots Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign.
