Cementing the Occupation: Israel's Illegal Wall Puts Palestine Behind Bars

May 23rd, 2005

In June 2002 Israel began working on its largest contstruction project to date, the wall.  At completion, the wall will be three times as long and twice as high as the Berlin wall, trapping tens of thousands of Palestinians inside what will effectively be an open air prison.  In addition to impact that the wall has on the mobility Palestinian population, it also cuts off Palestinian farmers from their agricultural land and water sources, and will have severe consequences for the natural environment.  Download "Cementing the Occupation" to learn more about the wall, its status under international law, and US policy.
