Stop the Wall

We are a grassroots movement uniting the struggle of the popular committees in the villages, refugee camps and cities struggling against the Wall and the settlements and the efforts of Palestinian civil society.  Our call is to:

  1. Stop the Wall
  2. Dismantle parts already built

The Latest From Palestine

Exactly 25 years ago, the Berlin Wall came down. John F. Kennedy’s famous speech ‘I am a Berliner’ made that wall the very symbol the West had chosen to embody the ‘other’ against which it pitted itself for decades, justifying countless wars, support for dictatorships, torture across the world and internal repression. November 9, 1989 marked the end of the Cold War era and the beginning of the era of the ‘clash of civilizations’. Returning to the old orientalist scheme the Arab and Muslim populations became the new enemy.

 

Dozens of Palestinian activists crossed Israel's illegal apartheid wall in the West Bank on Friday near the Qalandiya checkpoint as part of a series of protest actions to demonstrate solidarity with Jerusalem.

Activists used makeshift ramps and ladders and cut through barbed wire to climb over the apartheid wall near Qalandiya military checkpoint, which is at least six meters in height.

The action was part of a campaign entitled #On2Jerusalem that was organized by the Popular Resistance Committees.

Palestinian activists affiliated with local popular resistance committees in the villages northwest of Jerusalem on Saturday broke open a hole in the separation wall to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

"No matter how high walls are built, they will fall. Just as the Berlin Wall fell, the wall in Palestine will fall, along with the occupation," the popular committees said in a statement.

Te Palestinian company ASSIA Consulting Engineers has sent a letter to the Stop the Wall Campaign announcing their withdrawal from all of the projects to the Israeli civil administration in Bet Eil. The company further assures their commitment to work together against the expulsion of the Bedouin communities of the West Bank. This is a major step to unify the Palestinian efforts on the ground and to support the steadfastness of the Palestinian people on their land.

Last Saturday, in Surif, south of Hebron, another action of collective olive harvesting was organized. Many volunteers, including local farmers, international activists and a bus of volunteers from Acre, picked olives in burning sunshine. The farmers cultivating the land of Surif, near Hebron, can look back at a continuous and successful struggle for the rights to their land.
