Direct action against the building of the Wall, Al-Walajeh

From Anne Paq | Jan 8, 2012

Today there was a direct action organized in Al-Walajeh village close to Bethlehem.

A group of Israel activists sit in front of a caterpillar bulldozer which was working on building the route of the Wall and managed to stop it for about one hour. 9 Israeli activists were forcibly dragged by Israeli soldiers and arrested. They are now in Atarot police station.

The action highlights the critical situation of Al-Walajeh village. Once completed the village will be totally surrounded by the Wall, isolating it from both Jerusalem and the West Bank. Hundreds of trees had been uprootd and the villagers will lose access to their lands.

More action will take place. Bulldozers building the Wall should not be stopped for one hour, they should be stopped forever!
