[Biddu, NW Jerusalem] Tomorrow, May 11, 2004 at 11:00 am Palestinian, Israeli and International women will gather at the Municipal council of Biddu and march to the worksite of the Israeli separation barrier to protest the continued construction of the barrier and the destruction of their land.

One Palestinian women, Deema Hamdan from Al-Isawiya was reportedly beaten by the soldiers after she was arrested.
