Dozens others suffered from the tear gas inhalations in the fourth
demonstration in Ramadan and the people of Ni’lin village continue their
struggle despite of Ramadan and the very hot weather.Like every week, the
demonstration started with a prayer under the olive trees.
7 International and 8 Israeli activists joined our demonstration. As every
friday, the protesters marched towards the Apartheid wall which is being
built on our land. We are very upset because we cannot farm on our land,
some of which was set on fire by the Israeli soldiers 3 weeks ago. The
demonstrators carried pictures which showed the shameful crimes the Israeli
soldiers committed against our prisoners.
When the protesters reached the wall, the Israeli military started shooting
tear gas canisters into the crowd. 6 demonstrators suffered so badly from
the inhalation that the medical team had to take care of them. Again, the
soldiers tried to catch and arrest as many demonstrators, as they always do.
This time they succeeded in arresting 2 International activists, one man and
one woman. The soldiers beat the woman heavily, even when she fell down and
told them that her leg hurt very much they continued to beat her.
It was very strange and also scary, when the soldiers spread into the
orchards and surrounded us; we all felt like in a trap. The demonstration
was finished at 2pm. After a long time of interrogation, the arrested
activists were released .
