Gush Shalom: Joining The Walk Against The Wall

Wednesday Afternoon - Joining The Walk Against The Wall

The international Anti-Wall-Walk - along (and against) the notorious route of the Wall, and organized by the ISM, is gaining momentum.

Wednesday, August 18, in the afternoon there will be a Gush Shalom bus from Tel-Aviv & picking up Jerusalemers as well, enabling you to take part in the one but last day, when the march will pass the A-Ram part.

Please leave your phone number and the number of seats you need on the answering machine of Gush Shalom 03-5221732; you will be phoned back with exact details.

On the day after (Thursday, Aug. 19) at 11pm the Supreme Court judges will give their verdict re the appeal of the A-Ram community against the Wall.

Awaiting the Supreme Court's decision (and in spite of the clear ruling of the International Court in The Hague), the main Jerusalem-Qalandia Highway connecting A-Ram with Qalandiya checkpoint has already been dug up, and the 8 meter concrete slates are lying on the side waiting to be erected. If this is not stopped the Jerusalem suburb A-Ram will have a monster wall right through its middle, preventing people from crossing the main road, cutting off merchants from their customers, workers from their work places, pulils from their schools, patients from their hospitals, etc. Tens of thousands of Palestinians will be cut off from the West Bank, other tens of thousands from all parts of annexed Jerusalem.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ JOIN US WEDNESDAY - AND SEE FOR YOURSELF ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gordon Campbell: On Britain's Pleas For Mercy

So… Boris Johnson is promising that he won't be holding a snap general election, if he's chosen as the next UK Conservative Party leader. Reportedly, he is even making that promise a feature of his leadership campaign, since a vote for Boris would therefore mean (wink wink) that his colleagues wouldn't have to risk their jobs and face the wrath of the British public until 2020.
