Monday we accompanied Yuval - a refusnik of the High-school graduates initiative - to the recruiting center, and demonstrated there. (He received two weeks in jail as a beginner.) Friday we had the usual joint demonstrations of local villagers, internationals, and Israeli Anarchists Against the Wall initiative at Bil'in, Ni'ilin, and Umm Salamuna. Jayyous seems to be joining this tradition. Israelis arrived there in spite of roadblocks by Israeli state forces. [Italiano]

YUVAL

Yuval Oron-Ofir, a signatory of the 2008 high school seniors' refusal letter, was sentenced on Monday, 24 Nov., to 14 days in military prison for his refusal to serve in the Israeli military. Yuval is 19 years of age. He lives in the Arab-Jewish village of Neve Shalom / Wahat al-Salaam. Yuval refuses to join the Israeli military as it is an occupying force. He is due out of first period in prison on 5 Dec. His prison address is:

Military Prison No. 6
Military Postal Code 01860, IDF

BIL'IN

At noon, we marched as usual from the village center to the route of the separation fence. As they do often, the State forces started to shoot at us with tear gas grenades even before we reached the route, causing us to re-group. As often happens, they tested a new kind of weapon on us this Friday. It was a tear gas grenade similar to the hand-thrown kind, but adapted to be fired by a special gun. This "experiment" resulted in serious damage to the eye of a Japanese activist. After they finished the "experiment" they minimalized the amount of shooting and the more experienced of us succeeded in entering the route of the separation fence. In spite of threats and some grenades we stayed there till we decided to end the demonstration.
