This fact sheet revolves around the stories of women working in a variety of capacities against the Wall in their villages. The aim of the fact sheet is to introduce the struggles of five villages, Bil’in, Ni’lin, al Nabi Saleh, al Ma’sara and al Walaja, against the Wall and settlements. We hope that this fact sheet will be useful in shedding light on experience of women in the movement against the Wall and settlements as well as a basis for taking action in solidarity and support of their struggle.

The olive harvest ended this year, and as in other seasons, both farmers and the land they own faced continuous attacks from Occupation forces and settlers. This season’s assaults were distinguished by their ferocity, occurring in the shadow of the failing negotiations between the Occupation state and the Palestinian Authority. The Occupation plans of continuing settlement translates into an intensification of attacks, whether through new expansion and land confiscation or physical assaults on Palestinian farmers aimed at forcing them off their lands.

Hundreds of Palestinian and international activists, members of Palestinian women’s institutions and unions, and Palestinian political officials and leaders joined in the protest in Bil’in this week to honor Jawaher Abu Rahmah.




The village of Beitin is located less than five minutes from Ramallah. Overlooking the city from the northeast, Beitin is sandwiched between the two settlements Bet El, which also contains a military base, and Ofra. The main road between Beitin and Ramallah has been closed by an Occupation checkpoint, forcing residents from Beitin and surrounding villages to travel nearly a half-hour on an agricultural road to reach the city.




Occupation forces repressed a demonstration condemning the Apartheid Wall and settlements at the Qalandiya checkpoint, which closes off Jerusalem to the north, on Saturday. Demonstrators called for the opening of the checkpoint and demanded that Palestinians be allowed to enter and reach their isolated city.

On Christmas Eve, several hundred people protested against the Wall al Walaja. Located next to Bethlehem, the small village is struggling to halt the recently renewed construction of the Wall. If completed, the village will be encircled on all sides. Residents living near the path of the Wall have faced harassment by Occupation soldiers, and local activists who have tried to stop bulldozers have been beaten and arrested.

While President Obama prepares for a photo-op for the resumption of direct negotiations between the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) and Israel, Palestinians got ready for protests (1). There is frustration and anger in the Palestinian streets, in the minibuses that serve as public transport as much as among the political activists. The PNA decision to resume direct talks with Israel has provoked an almost unprecedented climate of tension between the Palestinian people and their leadership.

Occupied Palestine, 08 June 2010 -- In light of Israel’s massacre of humanitarian relief workers and activists aboard the Freedom Flotilla on 31 May 2010 and its insistence to continue its illegal siege on Gaza, pressuring Israel to comply with its obligations under international law has become of undeniable urgency.

In the village of Ni’lin’s weekly protest against Israeli Occupation, protestors demonstrated their solidarity with those who participated in the Freedom Flotilla’s effort to end Israel’s siege on the Gaza Strip. Participants raised Turkish flags as well as flags of the countries of origin of many of the Flotilla’s activists in honour of those that were killed by Israeli forces. In their attempt to suppress the march, Israeli forces drowned the area in tear gas and set off sound bombs, resulting in the suffocation of many of the protestors.
