Place: Mas’ha Village, Salfit District, West Bank
Date: Friday, July 8, 2005
Time: 12:00 noon
Residents of the Salfit Region will march from the Mosque to the Separation Wall in Mas’ha. The residents demand that the United Nations enforce the International Court’s decision to halt construction on the Wall. The demonstration is organized by the Popular Committees Against the Wall and will be joined by International Women’s Peace Service and Israeli peace activists.
On July 9, 2004, the International High Court of Justice declared the Separation Wall illegal and called on Israel to dismantle the Wall. This decision was affirmed by the United Nations General Assembly on July 20, 2004; yet the UN has done nothing to halt construction.
One year has passed and the construction on the wall continues. The Wall reaches more than 20 km deep into the Salfit region, confiscating hundreds of dunums of Palestinian land and destroying thousands of olive trees.
On the one year anniversary of the decision by the International Court, the Popular Committees Against the Wall call on the United Nations to enforce the Court’s decision to halt construction on the Wall immediately.
