Bil’in – Ramallah: One villager hit by rubber-coated steel bullet and dozens suffered from tear gas inhalation during the weekly demonstration against the illegal settlements and the Apartheid Wall in Bil’in.

Like every Friday, the villagers walked through the village towards the second Apartheid Wall that still occupies around 30% of the village’s land. They crossed the olive groves that the Israeli army had illegally annexed for over six years and which the villagers were able to liberate through their continuous resistance. Some gathered early and enjoyed the shade of the trees in the area where villagers have now created the Abu Laymoon park.
When the protestors reached the second Apartheid Wall at the illegal colony on their lands – chanting for the liberation of Palestine and raising the Palestinian flag and banners of the imprisoned Marwan Bargouthi – soldiers stationed behind the wall started shooting tear gas canisters and rubber coated steel bullets at them, setting fire to a stretch of bushes close to the park. A twenty year old was shot with a rubber coated steel bullet in the leg. In spite of the continuing barrage of tear gas canisters, the protestors held their ground in the heat of Palestine’s summers, chanting “Palestine is the 194 state”, in reference to the PA’s plan to request recognition as a full member state at the UN in September, demanding the immediate release of all political prisoners and vowing to keep up the resistance until Palestine is free and Palestinian rights are recognized.

2-White House – New York
Dear Friends, We would like to invite you to join our demonstrations in front of the White House on September 15th and in front of the United Nations building in New York on September 15th. The purpose of these demonstrations is to declare opposition to US aid to the Israeli occupation of Palestine.
American tax dollars go toward supporting an illegal and humiliating occupation of Palestinian land; the construction of illegal settlements; the annexation of Palestinian farmland; the purchase of weapons and arms used in night raids and military strikes. Right now your money finds its way to this part of the world where children and innocent civilians are killed, injured, and made to suffer. It also empowers the Israeli government to further ignore international law and perpetuate its intransigence. These demonstrations in September will tell the US government to stop supporting this occupation and stand up for justice and freedom in Palestine. http://www.facebook.com/pages/September15/216475758396747

The Palestinian popular commitees have sent out the following message, asking for help in ending the staggering amount of aid the United states sends to Israel; aid that is essential in maintaining the illegal military occupation of Palestine. In London we will heed their call and demonstrate outside the US embassy on September 17th. If you support justice for the Palestinian people please be there, the message is:

Dear Friends The popular comittees-Palestine asks all those who support peace and justice in Palestine to organise demonstrations in September outside the US embassies of their countries calling for the end of US aid to Israel. Demonstrations are already planned in front of the White House on September 15th and in front of the United Nations building in New York on September 15th, but to be successful we need to globalise the resistance.
American tax dollars go toward supporting an illegal and humiliating occupation of Palestinian land; the construction of illegal settlements; the annexation of Palestinian farmland; the purchase of weapons and arms used in night raids and military strikes. Right now American money finds its way to this part of the world where children and innocent civilians are killed, injured, and made to suffer. It also empowers the Israeli government to further ignore international law and perpetuate its intransigence.

These demonstrations in September will tell the US government to stop supporting this occupation and stand up for justice and freedom in Palestine, lets spread them far and wide accross the planet.
Salaam
