The people of Bil'in commemorated the Nakba day
Today, 13th of May 2011. About 200 Palestinians, Israelis and internationals marched together towards the Wall. Some had dressed up as refugees from 1948, to commemorate those who were forced from their homeland 63 years ago. Also some were carrying a large key symbolizing all those refugees who still hold the key to their homes, not being allowed to return in spite of UN resolutution 194 that clearly states that all the refugees from 1948 must be allowed back and offered compensation.
The army had declared the village a closed military zone, trying to prevent people from reaching the village by setting up closures on all the roads around Bil'in. The army had also set up sementblocks and barbed wire in front of the Eastern gate in order to prevent people from reaching the gate. Hundreds of soldiers and border police had lined up on the military post and around the fence.
Clashes erupted between army and protesters, and large amounts of tear gas and sound bombs were used, in addition to sewage water sprayed at the protesters. Many people suffered from tear gas inhalation, and some were vomiting. Ahmed Abu Rahma was hit by a tear gas canister on his arm, causing pain.
The tear gas set fire to the dry ground several times, and protesters prevented it to spread. The demonstration lasted for about 2 hours.
the Popular Committee Against the Wall in Bil'in called all the sons of the Palestinian people At Palestine and abroad to participate in the activities of the 63 anniversary of the Nakba, and private events Central in the West Bank and Gaza Strip and inside the Palestinian 48 and Arab capitals And foreign to confirm our adherence to the right of return, and the emphasis on the refugee issue is an issue Palestinian Arab and international all liberals of the world support our people in their legitimate struggle even Freedom and independence and return to the land which they were expelled in 1948.

, Last Week's Panel is now online
Monday, May 9, 2011
I am very proud to announce that our last week panel event is now online (see bellow).
In spite of the pathetic attempts by Zionists and their Jewish ‘anti Zionist’ allies to crash the event, the panel was a great success. The room was packed. We explored some of the most complicated issues to do with current world affairs. Some of London Jewish activists broke away from their segregated 'Jews only cells' and marched with us.
Interestingly enough, our detractors who promised to picket the event didn’t dare showing up.
I believe that the panel was a crucial contribution to this movement and freedom of thought.
I vow to do it again and again and again. I will keep you posted.
