Description

On 15th November 2014 Israeli activists and supporters from Combatants for Peace approached the Seperation Wall from the Jerusalem side. They were commemorating the Palestinian Declaration of Independence in 1988. They were also inspired by the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. This wall too must fall !! At the same time Palestinian activists and supporters gathered in Bethlehem and approached the Wall at Beit Jala. They shouted slogans and had conversations through the fences. Israeli Border Police intervened and fired one sound grenade at the Palestinian demonstrators. They were persuaded to desist as the whole demonstration was entirely non-violent. Afterwards both groups met together in an olive grove in Beit Jala for a public Question and Answer session. Media coverage of this event was very poor, probably because there was no violence. So please spread this video to all your friends.
