Al-Walaja protest 10-8-2011 PDF Print E-mail
Despite the fact that the case of the route of the Apartheid-Annexation Wall through the SW Jerusalem village of al-Walaja is due to be heard in the Israeli Supreme Court on September 27 occupation forces are busy creating "facts on the ground" by uprooting olive trees and doing the preparatory ground work for a crime against humanity that will create a living ghetto similar to Gaza,
Qalqilya and neighbouring Bethlehem. In revulsion against this, Palestinians and international solidarity activists their numbers greatly augmented by members of the Israeli Anarchists Against the Wall direct action group protested in al-Walaja today but were greeted with stun grenades, tear gas and some thirteen arrests by the Israeli army. The village of Al-Walaja was, in 1948, the second largest land area after Jerusalem but was cut down to one third the size when Israel declared statehood that year. Now a border village, Al-Walaja is edged on its eastern flank by an expanding bloc of colonies and is being reduced in size by the path of the Apartheid- Annexation Wall, which annexes between two to three kilometers of village lands from the pre-1967 border.
