THE HAGUE, (PIC)– The Hague-based European initiative against the wall and settlements launched on Sunday an information campaign against Israel’s segregation wall and settlement expansion in the West Bank.

“No to the wall … no to settlements” is the slogan for its campaign that includes sit-ins, protests, symposiums and social networking.

Head of the European initiative Amin Abu Rashed said in a press release that the campaign was launched on the eighth anniversary of the resolution against the segregation wall that was issued by the international court of justice in 2004.

Abu Rashid added that the campaign is aimed at renewing international moves to condemn Israel’s settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian lands.

He noted that the campaign started on Sunday and would end on July 9, the same day the international court of justice issued its resolution against the wall.

The anti-wall activist affirmed that the campaign would include meetings with officials from international legal and humanitarian organizations and the UN to hand them a research study about the adverse impacts of the wall on the lives of Palestinians in the occupied territories during the past eight years.

A number of symposiums about the Israeli apartheid wall and settlement activities will be organized in a number of Arab and foreign countries, he added.

He stressed that the European initiative would be working keenly during its campaign on delivering a message to the international court of justice emphasizing the need for forming an executive body able to enforce its resolution against the wall.

The European initiative against the wall and settlements is headquartered in the Hague, Netherlands, and was established on the first of June 2010. It is a consortium of many European groups and human rights organizations which oppose Israel’s apartheid wall and settlement activities in the Palestinian lands.
