FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Tomorrow, August 11, 2006, at 1pm the people of Bil’in will conduct another demonstration against the wall and war crimes Israel is committing daily in Lebanon and Gaza. With the support of Israelis and internationals they will carry five coffins with fake, bloodied bodies inside representing a family of one mother, one father and three children. The coffins will read: “The New Style of Killing, but the Israeli Way”, referring to how the Israeli army not only kills the fathers, but the mothers and children as well.
The Bil’in Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements has organized weekly demonstrations since January 2005. Throughout their struggle Israelis and internationals have been supportive in resisting army incursions into the village, imposed curfew, and the wall that has estranged them from 60% of their farmland.
