FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
On July 7th, at 1pm, the people of Bil’in joined by international and Israeli supporters will demonstrate against the apartheid wall in commemoration of the Second Anniversary of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruling that the Wall is illegal. The Bil’in Popular Committee against the wall and settlements has planned a celebration with international, Israeli and Palestinian musicians to participating.
Two years ago, the ICJ in the Hague, despite intense pressure from Israel, the US and EU governments, confirmed what Palestinians and the world have known since the beginning of its planning and construction: that the wall is illegal. The text states that, “Israel is under an obligation to terminate its breaches of international law; it is under an obligation to cease forthwith the works of construction of the wall being built in the Occupied Palestinian Territory”.
