Demo in Budrus Friday


Demo in Budrus Friday

There will be another massive demonstration against the wall on Friday, April 1st, 2004 at 12:30pm on the Budrus land.

The tiny village has attracted international attention for its courageous attempts to use non-violent direct action to stop the Apartheid Wall, which will confiscate 90% of the village land. Young girls and old women alike have thrown themselves in front of bulldozers and have managed to delay the building of the Apartheid Wall for more than four months.

Their peaceful resistance has cost them dearly - 10 village activists are in jail and over 40 have been injured by the Israeli Occupation Forces.
