      ANARCHISTS AGAINST THE WALL

      No to the ghetto that's being built by Jews!
      No to walls between people!
      Stop the occupation!
      Israeli, Palestinians and international activists
      Bringing down the apartheid wall in mash'a
      In this moment, friday afternoon {seventh candle of hanuka} dozens of
      activists are tearing apart and breaking down the gate of the apartheid wall
      which is also known as the "separation fence", to enable a free passage
      for the people of mas'ha to their lanDs.
      The activists, equiped with tools, are breaking the gate that has remained
      closed since the wall was built two monthes ago.
      The farmers, whose land is on the other side of the fence were told that
      they would be able to cross through the gate to work their lands.
      That promise turned out to be a methodical, crude and cruel lie.
      All throughout the suffocating wall the gates are remaining blocked and
      the Palestinian residents remain with no access to their only source of
      income.

      The army is present - at the Mas'ha village gates which are located next to
      Elkana settlement - and yet, its not clear how will the confrontation
      between the army and the activists will end.
      The activists are calling for a joined active resistance of Israelis and
      Palestinians toward the ghettoizing policy that the Israeli government is
      issuing.
      The action is being held as a part of The Alternative Protest Camp Against
      The Apartheid Wall that started a week ago in Deir Balut.
      The camp is hosting Israelis and Palestinians, and located on the path of
      the Apartheid Wall, on the land of the village's elementary school.
      (The building of the school was stopped due to the land being confiscated
      for the building of the wall.)

      We invite the media that follows Ariel Sharon's promises, for the so called
      evacuation of he settlements, to come and see for them selfs the land
      confiscating and settlement expansion operation that is operating this days.
      Deir Balut protest camp and other protest actions that take place and that
      will take place in the future will set a live and kicking alternative to the
      occupying, stealing and confiscating actions that the Sharon government
      and the Israeli army are responsible for.

      ANARCHISTS AGAINST THE WALL

      Subject: Israeli anarchist seriously injured and ISP one moderately in activity against the apartheid wall

      In activity against the apartheid wall an Israeli anarchist was seriously injured
      by Israeli forces live ammunition and an internationalist by rubber bullet. They were
      shot at as 100 activists have damaged the wall near the village Mesha.
      The activity initiated by the Anarchist Movement against the Wall (The One Struggle collectiv)*
      Israel occupation soldiers shot and wounded two people during a demonstration against
      the West Bank security fence Friday. An Israeli anarchist - Gil Naamaty of Kibbutz
      Nirim sustained serious live ammunition wounds, while International Solidarity
      Movement comrade was moderately wounded by rubber bullet.
      The incident occurred close to the Palestinian village of Mahase, east of Rosh Ha'ayin.
      were protesting against the construction of the security fence.

      During the protest, troops used live ammunition shooting to hit. At a later stage,
      the ISP activist was wounded by a rubber bullet. Gil, whose friends said was hit by two
      bullets, and the ISP volunteer were evacuated to Beilinson hospital in Petah Tikva.

      The troops involved in the incident are from a Golani company stationed in the area.
      According to military sources, known lately for their lies, said one live shot was
      fired in the direction of the demonstrators, who were attempting to cut through the
      security fence with wire cutters. One demonstrator was hit in the leg by the shot,
      the sources said. "The shot was fired in accordance with regulations," the sources
      insisted.

      One of the demonstrators, Jonathan Faulk, told Haaretz that a group of soldiers
      opened fire in his direction, from a distance of several meters. Faulk said that
      there was no warning before the shots were fired, and that "the soldiers' lives
      were never in any danger."

      [The leaflet was distributed at the Saturday demo in protest
      of the shooting in front of the Israeli war ministry in Tel Aviv
      before details of Gill injuries were known: He lost consciousness after being
      shot with a live bullets in his legs which one of them was brocken - and was
      taken by an ambulance. Everything was photographed by both still - and video
      camera - see addresses in the end. Next day - after his shattered knee was operated.
      Jonathan who was arrested after the shooting was released and came at the of the demo.

      The anarchists against the wall is not so disorganized as described in the
      media. They even have a declared collective named "One Struggle" with a
      web site in Hebrew.

      Army claimed the shooting was as part of the procedure of
      "aresting of suspect" regulation - applied to any one who
      is warming the fence/wall (an exeption to the regular procedure
      of only shooting those who are known armed parestinians or
      attakers of soldiers.
