10 July 2011 | International Solidarity Movement, West Bank
On 9th July, a group of twenty Palestinians accompanied by twenty internationals, managed to cut through some fence near the checkpoint at Qalandia.
The direct action was organised by Welcome to Palestine as part of the Week of Action in the West Bank. The action was in defiance against the Apartheid Wall, which divides the West Bank and is central to the Israeli occupation of Palestine.
Activists were able to cut through the barbed wire fence and plant Palestinian flags on the other side.
