West Bank: NonViolent Organizing Resumes in Salfit

***Non-Violent Organizing Resumes in Salfit***

Place: Deir Ballut, Az Zawiya, and Mas’ha in the Salfit District, West Bank

Date: Wednesday, July 20, 2005

Time: 10:00 a.m.

Non-violent Palestinian activists, joined by internationals and Israelis, will hold a one day tour of three villages in the Salfit District which have been severely affected by the construction of the Separation Barrier. Participants in the tour will meet with local residents and learn about the impact of the occupation on daily life in these villages.

The tour will begin at 10:00 a.m. at a partially constructed school in Deir Ballut. The Israeli Army has halted construction on the school since June 2003 and will not allow the village to complete the school, which is funded by World Vision, a project of USAID.

At 11:00 a.m. the tour will proceed to Az Zawiya. Local residents, city council members, Women for Life, and girls from a local summer camp, will meet with the tour participants to discuss effects of the occupation and construction on the
Separation Barrier in Az Zawiya and neighboring villages.

At 2:30 tour participants will visit the house of Hani Aamer in Mas’ha. Since the completion of the wall in Mas’ha two years ago, the Aamer house has been surrounded by the wall on all four sides. The family may only enter and leave when soldiers open the gates.
