A fund raising tour in Canada and the US to raise money for the legal fund of Anarchists Against The Wall

ATW Canada/US fund raising tour Feb-March 2009
Anarchists Against the Wall is a direct action group that fights against Israeli apartheid and oppression in all its forms, most recently against the atrocities in Gaza. For five years we have waged a constant struggle against Israel's separation Wall. Our work on the ground in the West Bank alongside the Palestinian popular movement is breaking new ground in the joint struggle for Palestinian liberation. In December 2008, Anarchists Against the Wall and the Bilin Village Committee were jointly awarded the prestigious Carl von Ossietzky Medal---an award given annually by the Berlin-based International League of Human Rights, named after German Nobel Peace Prize winner Carl
von Ossietzkywho died in a Nazi concentration camp.

Now more than ever, it is critical to support the Israeli resistance movement against the states attempted repression of our work. Members of Anarchists Against the Wall continually pay the price for our activism, including being shot, beaten arrested and Indicted. We desperately need funding for legal support for both Palestinian and Israeli activists who are arrested and charged in the course of the struggle.

Schachaf Polokow, a member of Anarchists Against the Wall, will be touring the U.S. and Canada from February 1st to March 9th. His presentation will include film and photos and will focus both on AATW's recent work in solidarity with Gaza and our ongoing work in the West Bank. Please see the tour schedule below, and help us to get the word out.
