The mass demonstrations in Bil’in continue amidst gas and fire and attempted arrests
And so do the night raids
In Nebi Saleh, conscientious objector and BDS activist Yonatan Shapira was arrested trying to to explain to the army that those standing firm in the face of opression are women and girls. So the army brought their own women to play baseball with the boys and young men of the village, using gas grenades fired directly at the makeshift bats.
The Nebi Saleh committee joined the Beit Jalla march on Sunday, as the bulldozers where working on construction of the annexation wall. The army army placed razor wire in the middle of the village and shot gas grenades in the town square.
More nonviolent demonstrations took place during the week and are taking place as we speak in the villages Wadi Rahel, Ma’asara, Beit Ummar, al-Wallaje, Biddu and many others.
