The last weeks have demonstrated not only Israeli inhuman brutality as it perpetuates its regime of occupation and apartheid. They have shown that Palestinian collective, non-violent resistance is becoming the weak spot for Israeli occupation. Be part of this movement and send today a message that the world cares.

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

November 9 will signal worldwide that joint construction of a #WorldwithoutWalls has started. We are calling on activists, movements and groups to join with a stencil action. This action will symbolise that “We are many, we are everywhere, and we will continue to build a #WorldwithoutWalls together”.

You may choose to add this action to some other initiative you are planning or do the stencil action on its own.The important part is: please let us know and send us pictures, videos, and reportbacks so that we can share them! For the stencil file and a short tutorial, please click here.

Call for the Week against the Apartheid Wall 2015: November 9-16

Stop the Bantustans!

2015 has been so far one of the worst moments in the waves of ethnic cleansing by Israel against the Palestinian people. Israel is rapidly implementing its plan to forcibly transfer the Palestinian population out of the over 500 communities located in area C: 7,000 Palestinians living in 46 Bedouin communities in the Jordan Valley and east of Jerusalem are currently resisting the demolition of their communities, an additional 20 communities are under threat in the South Hebron hills. This adds to the over 15,000 Palestinians expelled from their homes in the West Bank during the last two decades and includes some of the 4,500 pending demolition orders against Palestinian buildings. We are fast approaching a crucial point of no return.

No liberation without a strong and organized working class
- and no liberation without a strong women´s liberation movement


The Working Class and Women
  • the basis of building democracy
  • the basis of liberation

 

Kamal Farah Abed keeps stones on his roof to protect his family from Israeli settlers. All his windows have grids on. "We teach our children that fear is not allowed here. I’m not going anywhere. They will have to kill us all, but we’re not leaving”.

Nabi Saleh, West Bank – Palestinian activist Mustafa Tamimi, 28, died this morning of wounds sustained after the Israeli occupation forces shot him in the face on Friday at the weekly popular protest in Nabi Saleh. Tamimi was shot from less than 10-meters distance with a high velocity tear gas grenade that made him unconscious and bleeding profusely. He was then taken to hospital where he remained in life support until this morning. The Israeli occupation forces prevented his family from accompanying him.

Stop the Wall is organizing three demonstrations to add to the weekly Friday activities against the Wall in the different villages:

The demonstration takes place to commemorate the massacre of the people of al Sammou, south of Hebron. Exactly 45 years ago, on November 13 1966 Israeli forces raided this village, destroyed 125 houses, the village clinic and school as well as 15 houses in a neighboring village. 18 people were killed and 54 wounded.

The popular committees and the popular resistance networks invite all those that are fighting oppression, discrimination, racism and colonisation across the globe to join us in the ‘United in Struggle’ from 24-26 October in Palestine to build a united front against racism, repression, colonialism, exclusion and exploitation. Let’s join hands in a common struggle for justice and freedom. 

Last Friday, in Kufr Malek a mass demonstration has protested the establishment of a new settlement outpost on the village lands. The mobilization comes after last year four settler outposts were stopped by popular resistance. One settlement at a time, we are challenging Israel's settlement project and apartheid regime.

Today, Eid al Adhar, the most important holiday in the Muslim calendar, Israel attempted a take over of the Al Aqsa mosque in its ongoing policy to Judaize Jerusalem. Yet, tens of thousands of Palestinians gathered for prayers at the Mosque defended their holy places, rights and dignity.

As Palestinian grassroots Stop the Wall Campaign we reiterate our solidarity with the Mexican people and all those affected by the US Wall and the Trump administration’s anti-migration policies. The years of joint struggles together with Mexican movements have shown us the atrocious level of necropolitics, that include endless violations of human rights and the rights of the peoples of Mexico. Israel contributes with its weapons, technology and trainings to facilitate this veritable war on the people and reaps huge profits from this dirty business. This urgently underlines the need for the people to unite in the fight against militarization and for peace, justice and freedom.

On May 17, for the 5th year in a row the Land Defense Coalition organized together with the Falestiniyat movement, formed by Palestinians inside the Green Line the commemoration of Tantura Massacre."Everyone felt for one moment that Tantura was liberated that evening and return had been achieved".

73 European Palestine solidarity and migrants rights groups and networks from 17 European states have chosen Nakba Day 2019 – the Day Palestinians reaffirm their commitment to the struggle for the return of their refugees – to unite in a joint call for a #WorldwithoutWalls in order to claim the right for all to move, to stay and to return in freedom, justice and equality.

2018 has seen Stop the Wall involved deeply in the struggle against Israel’s relentless efforts to reduce the Palestinian people into Bantustans, dispossessed, displaced and enclosed by walls and checkpoints. Against all odds, we have achieved a number of victories and given hope and support in the crucial moments to our people in struggle. Stop the Wall is now releasing an inspiring summary of our struggles and achievements throughout 2018. Reinforcing Steadfastness is the main strategy to resist Israeli plans of expulsion and dispossession. 

Beginning of the year, Israel's minister for 'strategic affairs' had called for the treatment Palestinian prisoners are suffering in Israeli jails to be even worsened. As raids inside the prisons are increasing, inmates are injured or even dying, Stop the Wall joins the Palestinian Higher Committee for Prisoners Affairs for regular protests in support of the over 5000 Palestinians in Israeli prisons.

Together with the children of the local school that Israel wants to demolish, Palestinian grassroots movements, including Stop the Wall, and the Cultural Center of Beit Anan, held on Tuesday February 5 an act of defiance and steadfastness.

This year started with continuous, popular protests across the West Bank and with actions of solidarity between the people to strengthen the steadfastness of those in the frontlines of the Israeli attacks. As Israel attempts to push forward its policies of expulsion and apartheid in the occupied West Bank, resistance continues and grows from community to community. 

Israeli occupation forces have started 2019 with intense attacks across the West Bank, including military invasions, destructions of the fields of Palestinian farmers, destructions of homes and heavy attempts to confiscate more and more land. The aim is to accelerate the final steps in the Israeli plan of ghettoization that is to turn their apartheid regime in a permanent fixture on Palestinian land.

In Palestine we have already organised a number of protests and activities, resisting Israel’s apartheid Wall and occupation… and this is only the start. We anticipate that Israel, especially in a year of elections and under the unconditional protection of the US administration, will escalate its attacks on our people and our land. Let’s stand together in joint resistance and more than that: 

Let’s make 2019 a crucial year for our collective struggle not only against Israel’s apartheid Wall but for a #WorldwithoutWalls!

People in Ramallah have taken to the streets in protest over Israel's brutal military escalation against the Gaza Strip that has killed already 15 Palestinians, injured scores and wrecked havock over the already besieged Strip.
