FootBall against the Wall

Today, Tues the 21st of February at 11:00 Bil’in villagers will inaugurate a football field on land cut off from their village by the route of the Annexation Barrier. This land has been earmarked by the Israeli authorities for the expansion of Modi’in Elite’s illegal outpost Metityahu Mizrah. Work in Metityahu Mizrah has recently been frozen following an appeal by the village council and Peace Now that pointed out that most of the structures in the outpost were built without permits and that the land they are built on was stolen from it’s Palestinian owners.

The football game will beplayed by Israeli, Internationals and Palestinian participants of the Conference on “joint struggle” held in Bil’in since yesterday.
