1/Residents of Az-Zawiya Steadfast in their Resistance to the Apartheid Wall, by IWPS

[Az-Zawiya, Salfit] Today over 400 villagers of Az Zawiya came out to protest for the third day in a row against the building of the wall which will cut them off from their land and their livelihoods. Az Zawiya, is one of three villages that will be surrounded by the wall, effectually creating an enclave that will include Rafat, Deir Ballut and Az Zawiya. Villagers participated in a peaceful march to their land where the bulldozers were working. The non-violent march was dispersed using tens of canisters of tear gas and sound bombs aimed at people. The air was full of smoke and gas for several hours. The soldiers were also using batons and hit and injured at least one elderly villager.
