Saturday, 24th September, 4:30 PM join the residence of Jaljuliya and the Triangle. Together we will protest:
- against the new plan to expropriate 700 acres of the 2000 that belong to Jaljuliya for the purpose of new facilities for the national rail and at the expense of the livelihood of 120 families
- Against holdup of a master plan for the village that will allow young couples to built their house where they were born and raised.
- Against the use of Jaljuliya’s lands (as in the case of other Arab towns in the triangle) for ‘national projects’ such as: roads, power, water and gas lines and so on.
The people of Jaljuliya too deserve social justice!
About 3,000 participated on Saturday in the demonstration against the the old ban on building houses and the new plan to confiscate the lands of the village.

Friday 23.09.11, weekly protest
By International communities
Friday 23.09.2011 One demonstrator got shot in the weekly protest against the apartheid wall. Last friday demonstration in Ni’lin, dozens of Palestinians together with a number of internationals and Israeli peace activists gathered in a peaceful march against the nearby Apartheid Wall. The demonstration was called by Ni’lin’s Popular Committee and started at 01:00 pm after Friday prayers under the olive trees in the fields.
The demonstrators raised Palestinian flags and carried a grave with “Good bye Occupation” written on it and chanted slogans condemning the last speech of the American president Obama who showed his full support for Israel and its ugly policy in Palestine.
Upon arrival at the gate of the Apartheid Wall, Palestinians, in a speech to the Israeli army, said that Palestinians will never give up or be scared by the Israelis threatening our existence and that freedom and justice will prevail someday. All the world is waking up and everything will change and Israel will pay for its crimes against the Palestinians.
The army responded with tear gas grenades and rubber coated steel bullets which caused a back injury to one Palestinian – dozens suffered from tear gas inhalation.
The demonstration continued until 03:00 pm
Friday September 23 afternoon, a protest vigil as every other week. A march from center of West Jerusalem to occupied Sheikh Jarrah in East Jerusalem.
South Hebron hills
This week we will accompany Palestinians farmers and shepherds to their lands in several locations in South Hebron hills. Harassment of Palestinian farmers and shepherds in the area by both settlers and the army continues.
Last Friday the army erected new roadblock in South Hebron Hills.
On Monday the Civil Administration handed out new demolition orders for sttuctures in Khirbet Umm el-Khier.
On Wednesday morning a an armed settler from Karmel begun the construction of a new stone structure on a hill the Umm el-Khier shepherds must traverse on their ways to the grazing lands and back. The settler screamed at the shepherds and chased them away.
This coming Saturday, September 24, we need as any activists as possible to accompany Palestinian farmers and shepherds and help them stand up for their rights. There is a direct link between the number of activists who come to accompany the farmers and their ability to harvest and work their lands.

Demo against eviction of squatting homeless from 5 years vacant university property
Vigil in memory of Ibrahim Zaza, 12 years old who was murdered by the Israeli-American killing machine in the Gaza strip Ghetto in front of the US embassy, Hayarkon 71, Tel Aviv Tuesday 20th September, 19:00. We were about 20 activists - mostly of the AAtW initiative.
Invitation: Tomorrow, Tuesday 20/9, we will hold a funeral/vigil for 12 year-old Ibrahim Zaza. Ibrahim succumbed to his wounds today after being severely hit by a rocket fired at him and his cousin, Mohammed (15), from an Israeli UAV (drone). The boys were were hit one month ago in Gaza, while playing on the street near their home, several meters away from the hospital gates.
The barbaric attack on these kids, which took Ibrahim's life, has been carried out with the absolute support, militarily and diplomatically, of the US - a full partner in crime. Ibrahim's death is a direct result of a murderous regime that disrespects human rights for non-Jews, as well as thanks to the overwhelming support for this regime by most western governments and primarily the American government.

REFUSING TO DIE IN SILENCE
A project of the popular comities for non violent struggle for monitoring colonialist settlers terror and sabotage - converging at Nabi Salih Monday
MEDIA: Settlement Leaders Concerned Over Arab Patrols Following the announcement that Palestinians will begin unofficial civil defense patrols throughout Judea and Samaria.
The Popular Committees, a Palestinian group known for its involvement in protests against Israel’s West Bank security barrier, and Anarchists Against the Wall, an Israeli organization with which they frequently collaborate, have called for volunteers to man “several cars [that] will patrol the West Bank” in order to “quickly respond to cases of settler attacks.”
Participants in the “volunteer-based campaign” will also stand guard over local Arab villages in order to prevent price tag attacks by Israeli settlers.
Price tag is a term adopted by the extreme fringe of the settlement movement for assaults on Arab infrastructure and property as a retaliatory measure against the dismantlement of unauthorized outposts.
Mohammed Khatib of the Popular Struggle Coordination Committee commented that “if anyone needed further proof that Palestinians cannot count on Israeli authorities to prevent settler violence, recent events show beyond doubt why we need to organize to defend ourselves.”
Teams on the ground, which will be “composed of Palestinian, Israeli and international activists, will be directed from an operations-room in Ramallah, to which toll-free calls will be routed.”
Among the settlement leaders who have expressed their concerns is David Ha’ivri. Ha’ivri alleged that the patrol initiative was “another effort by the extremist left wing and Anarchist activists in Israel to cause friction between Jewish and Arab residents.”
Despite prior assurances from Palestinian police spokesman General Adnan Damiri that no forces independent of his command would be allowed to operate in the territories, the PA has come out in favor of the civilian initiative.
“This is not about any security functions, but rather about Palestinians, Israeli[s] and international [activists working] to document, in order to protect, Palestinians from settlers’ attacks. Therefore it does not contradict with what Damiri said,” stated PA spokesman Ghassan Khatib.
