Ni’lin holds Iftar in olive groves

29 August 2009

Today, the Popular Committee of Ni’lin invited members of the Popular Committee of Bil’in and international and Israeli solidarity activists to join in the breaking of the fast with the residents of Ni’lin.

The women of the village had prepared food for this occasion which the men brought to the field at sunset. Long plastic sheets were stretched out on the ground for people to sit on and to place all the delicious dishes. It was only the men, however, who were eating in the field, the women were meant to stay at home.

The atmosphere was festive. Once everyone finished eating, some of the men spoke about the situation in Ni’lin, the land lost to the Occupation and to the Apartheid Wall.
