Active non-violence tearing down walls

23.06.2011 - Bilín - Nicolás Blanco

The Israeli Ministry of Defense started clearing about three miles of the barrier which is located on the west side of Bil’in and they say, the work will be completed by the end of next week.

The residents of Bil’in who have been separated from their farmland have demonstrated every Friday for the past six years. From the start of the weekly demonstrations Israeli leftist activists from around the world began to join, sometimes facing stone-throwing, tear gas and live ammunition from Israeli troops.

In such attacks by the army two Palestinians have been killed and many people injured, including several journalists.

Activists against Israel’s separation wall will meet next Friday at a demonstration in Bil’in to continue denouncing the new route of the wall that blocks the farmers access to many acres of land belonging to the village.

More and more examples show the validity of non-violence as a method of action, and the positive and profound effects it produces, because it can move the hearts of good men and women beyond borders, and because it allows those who practice it to develop coherence.
