      Tens of thousands to mobilize for Nov 9th International Day Against
      the Wall

      Press Release, The Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign, 3 November 2003

      The day declared by the Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign in Palestine is
      gathering major momentum as cities across Europe, Canada, the US,
      Latin America, and Australia are joining in solidarity with the
      popular Palestinian mobilization that is to take place on November 9,
      the date of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

      The International Day Against the Wall is expected to be noticeable
      and large scale and to be a spark that further strengthens the
      Palestinian call to stop the Wall and the momentum in Palestine and
      abroad.

      In Palestine, demonstrations will take place in the Qalqiliya,
      Tulkarem, Jenin, Salfit, Jerusalem, Ramallah, and Bethlehem districts
      in a call to stop and tear down the Wall. A protest and information
      tent will also be set up for the entire week of the 9th where
      publications, maps, a photo documentary exhibition, and cultural
      activities and lectures will take place.

      Participating in the Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign's call will be by
      communities, local councils, civil society organizations, political
      parties, youth groups, schools and universities, and the population
      at large.

      International actions will take place across Europe, Canada, the US,
      Chile and Brazil. Many groups are building a mock Apartheid Wall
      which will be symbolically torn down at the end of demonstrations,
      speaking events and vigils. In Europe demonstrations and information
      dissemination will take place in Italy, Spain, the Netherlands,
      Brittan, France, and Norway. As of yet, over 30 demonstrations
      worldwide are known to be taking place.

      The Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign is the grassroots Campaign
      coordinated by the Palestinian Environmental NGOs Network (PENGON).
      The Campaign is a unified Palestinian effort of numerous NGOs and
      community grassroots organizations to stop the Wall. The Campaign
      began in October 2002 and is considered the only Palestinian national
      Campaign against the Wall.
