What: Mass demonstration in Bil’in

Six years have passed since residents of Bil’in, together with their Israeli and international supporters, started regularly demonstrating against the Wall and the confiscation of more than half their land by it. It has been more than three years since the Israeli High Court ruled that the path of the Wall must be changed as soon as possible, and the people of Bil’in have waited long enough.

The Bil’in Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements declared this Friday a celebration of six years of struggle against the wall and the Occupation. Bil’in’s residents, together with many hundreds of their supporters – from Israel, around the world and across the West Bank – will march once more towards the lands sequestered behind the Wall, but have no intention of being stopped by it.
