Bil’in demonstration reported in local English newspaper

Peace protestor Sam Grafton this week told of how violence broke out at a march in Palestinian. The 24-year-old, of Willes Road, Leamington, was part of a demonstration in the West Bank town of Bi’lin.

He claims he tried to stop aggression towards Palestinians protesting against a ‘security wall’ being built on their land.

Mr Grafton said: “The march was led by people who’ve been disabled by the occupation forces and other people carrying placards bearing the names of the 3,800 Palestinians who’ve been killed since the beginning of the second intifada in 2000.

“As soon as we left the village the army fired plastic bullets and tear gas directly into the crowd at head height.

“They acted completely recklessly, especially as the demonstration was being led by people who were blind and in wheel chairs.”
