FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ISRAEL'S WALL DIVIDES PALESTINE
Bil'in villagers continued creative resistance

Tomorrow, Friday, October 14, 2005, Palestinian villagers from Bil'in will hold their weekly nonviolent protest against Israel's planned annexation wall, currently under construction on Bil'in's land.

Joined by Israeli activists and internationals activists from the International Solidarity Movement, Bil'in villagers plan to march to the wall site with a giant Palestinian flag personified with people's heads. In the middle of the flag will be a mock barrier, demonstrating how Israel's wall is dividing Palestine. The Israeli soldiers who will be present to repress the demonstration, will be made to appear as if they are holding up the mock barrier.

Bil'in lies five kilometers East of the Green Line. Israel's planned wall route cuts deep into the West Bank, annexing large sections of Palestinian land to Israel and separating Palestinians from eachother. If completed, Israel will annex 60% of Bil'in's agricultural land to Modi'in Elite settlement, the expansion for which has not yet been officially approved by the Israeli government.
