Four years and going strong

The popular struggle in Ma’asara stops the fence of annexation

October 2006 saw the beginning of regular demonstrations against the fence in the South Bethlehem region: women and kids from the villages most harmed by the fence stood in front of bulldozers and stopped the construction, and Palestinians and Israelis joined hands in a popular non-violent struggle to defend the land and stop the settlements.

Jerusalem, that bleeds every day… Jerusalem whose children are homeless under the rain. These young boys and girls who were promised by the martyr president Yaser Arafat that they would raise the Palestinian flag on the churches and mosques of Jerusalem. Mosques and churches who’s sanctity is defiled while we passively wait for salvation unaware that the responsibility lies with each and every one of us.
