Wednesday, January 6 2010 Help us in our struggle against the take-over by settlers of Palestinian houses in Sheikh Jarrah!
Saturday, December 12 2009 Mass demo outside the courthouse Following the multitude of arrests on Friday’s demo in Shekh Jarrah the following announcement: In the last few weeks every Friday , a demo takes place protesting the expulsion of residents of Sheikh Jarrah from their homes. During yesterday’s demo the Police used excessive force against the demonstrators, injuring over 10 people and arresting 27 of them. The arrested demonstrators spent the night in custody, and tonight will be brought in front of a judge to prolong their arrest.

Saturday, August 2 2008 Protest march from Tuwani to Tuba and settlers violence in Hebron We were invited to join a march of the children and residents of Tuwani, Tuba & Maghaer Al-Abeed, protesting the barring of the road from Tuwani to the neighboring villages by the Ma’on settlers, and repeated assaults of the Tuba & Maghaer Al-Abeed children on their way to Tuwani schools. As customary recently, the Israeli “security” forces had put many efforts in denying access of Israeli and international activists to the area – declared as “restricted military zone”.

Sunday, September 11 2005 The Dar El-Hanun struggle continues In the Summer of 2001 we held a large voluntary work camp in the unrecognized village of Dar El Hanun, in Wadi Ara. The village exists since the 20’s of the last century but the State of Israel refuses to recognize it and to supply it basic facilities: no electricity, telephone, paved road and social facilities, and the residents of the village are forbidden from improving their living conditions. During the work camp we, together with the villagers, constructed a children’s playground and paved a short entrance road to the […]

Tuesday, December 24 2002 Joint Palestinian-Israeli Peace Demonstration at the Church of the Nativity Square, Bethlehem Christmas Eve, December 24th 2002 Jerusalem: At around 9:00 am, the first fifty Israelis passed the military checkpoint and climbed over the dirt barricade. They were entering Bethlehem, which is considered “Area A” of the Palestinian territories and therefore out of bounds for Israeli citizens. Determined to meet their Palestinian partners, these Israelis, members of Ta’ayush, Arab-Jewish Partnership, had decided to defy the law. Christmas Eve, they thought, was a suitable day for an act of civil disobedience. In August, Ta’ayush members had attempted to walk from Jerusalem to Bethlehem, but, when they reached the […]
