Wednesday 23rd July – Women’s demonstration in Ni’lin

This is a call out to all female Palestinian, Israeli and international activists to join the non-violent demonstration against the construction of the apartheid wall this week. We will gather on Wednesday morning at 10 o’clock inside the Municipal building (‘Baladia’ in Arabic) of Ni’lin. Once we have gathered, we will march toward the construction site of the wall. This will be the first in a series of demonstrations that is organized and composed solely of women. Transportation can be subsidized if needed and buses arranged for large groups.

For the last two months, the villagers of Ni’lin have been protesting the illegal confiscation of their lands by Israel. Up to this point, the participants have largely been men, although this is an issue that affects everybody. However, women have an important role to play in the struggle against the Israeli occupation. We hope that this demonstration can help connect women to the struggle.

Please forward this message to anyone that might be interested.
