Israeli Anarchists, Palestinians and International Activists
protest theft of Bow Spring
Last 12 Aug 2011, twenty Israeli Anarchists Against the Wall along with solidarity activists from Belgium, Netherlands, UK, US, Italy and Ireland joined Palestinians in protesting against the theft of village land and its spring for the expansion of the nearby colony of Halamish. As the demonstrators descended the hill leading to the Bow Spring occupation forces opened fire on them from behind and subsequently from three firing positions. Some three hours after the demonstration was suppressed with stun grenades and tear gas, motor vehicles were prevented from entering the village for a period by soldiers manning the permanent checkpoint outside Nabi Saleh – it was feared this was a prelude to the village, same as occurred last Friday, to being raided again but the terror raid failed to materialize.
