Todays weekly demonstration in Bilin was conducted in solidarity with the Israeli settlement boycott movement. Palestinians, Israelis and internationals gathered to protest not only the Wall, but also to promote the boycott of goods produced in West Bank Israeli settlements. Participants were given literature detailing the dozens of products that are produced on Palestinian land and billed as Israeli products for global markets.
Demonstrators marched to the Wall and attached boycott posters on the fence before Israeli soldiers entered the gate and aggressively fired tear gas into the crowd. Two children, including a mentally disabled boy, were injured as a result. Three Israelis were arrested during the Israeli incursion: one journalist and two activists, Tali and Hamtal. Dozens suffered tear gas inhalation.
The demonstration was attended by a group of visiting students from Wayne State University in Detroit , Michigan , and students from Al Quds University. Iyad Burnat spoke to the group about the villages efforts to resist the confiscation and destruction of their land. Haitham al-Khatibs film, Life on Wheels, was shown, along with a film about the life and death of Bassem Abu Rahme, who was killed by Israeli forces in Bilin last April at a non-violent demonstration.
