FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Bil’in, Occupied West Bank
Protesters wearing US, EU and UN flags will eat a lavish feast in front of others, fenced in and wearing Palestinian flags who will eat nothing.
The protest symbolises the withdrawal of US and EU funding of the Palestinian Authority, as a result of the democratic election of Hamas earlier this year.
Villagers, International and Israeli peace activists, anarchists and others will hold the peaceful symbolic protest on Friday afternoon after midday prayers.
Peaceful protests in Bil’in have taken place every week for over a year now, since the apartheid wall and illegal settlement construction threaten approximately half of the village’s agricultural land. The withdrawal of EU and US funding will not make their situation any easier.
