Make Resistance to The Apartheid Wall go Global!

5 years after the Occupation started its destruction of our lands for the Wall,
2 years after the International Court of Justice called for the dismantling of the Wall,

Across the world mobilization is gearing up for the fourth annual Week against the Apartheid Wall (November 9-16), to unite with Palestinian communities in their struggle against the land grab and expulsion via a series of mass protests.

In Palestine, the Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign is preparing mobilization to defend our land and fields from the Wall and against the choking system of permits and gates. Further actions are planned to resist the expulsion and destruction of dozens of Palestinian villages isolated by the Wall and the Jewish-only colonies.

For several weeks, the Campaign has been preparing for the olive season. The Popular Committees are organizing collective harvesting and support in endangered areas while Palestinian youth volunteers participate in the efforts of the farming communities to collect the fruit of their work and stay steadfast to their land. Protests and festivals will mark the Week against the Apartheid Wall.

Students in several West Bank universities are planning for boycott initiatives to join the Week against the Apartheid Wall, taking their place as a new generation in the struggle for liberation.

Globally, the mobilization is growing. Mass demonstrations, weeks of action, boycott actions, conferences, community based events, film screenings, information stalls and direct actions are planned.
