VIDEO: Festive demonstration in Bil’in

Posted on 27. juni 2011


The weekly protest of the separation barrier in Bil’in on June 24 was similar of a festival with music, dancing and yellow, orange and Palestinian flags (yellow = Fatah, orange = National Initiative). The demonstrators celebrated that the fence will be moved back giving access to some of the villager’s land which were confiscated by Israel 6 years ago. Several hundreds took part in the march from the village center to the fence, which the Israeli government calls a ‘security fence’ while Palestinians refer to it as ‘the apartheid wall’.
