STOP THE WALL CALL TO ACTION
As the ghetto walls close
around our people, the voice of the Palestinian and Arab resistance
continues to echo within the Bantustans and beyond.
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.
So far, movements and campaigns
from the following countries have endorsed the call to action and
mobilization for the week against the Apartheid Wall:
