Um Salamunah village protest the illegal Israeli Wall

author Friday January 04, 2008 22:52author by Ghassan Bannoura - IMEMC News Report post

On Friday morning 200 Palestinians, internationals and Israelis marched against the illegal wall being built on land stolen illegally by the Israeli army from the villagers of Um Salamunah, located near the southern West Bank city of Bethlehem.

The protesters marched from the village towards the nearby settlers' road known as Road 60 that cuts the village of Um Salamunah off from its land. A year ago Israel started to build the illegal wall on  village land. The protest marked the one year anniversary of nonviolent resistance to the wall in that village. Local villagers held Friday prayers on the settlers' road then speeches were delivered. Israeli troops arrived in the area but did not attack protesters. The action finished shortly thereafter.
