Abducted again in Al-Walaja

The Israeli soldiers working as subcontractors for land thieves and racists also raided the freedom theater in Jenin.

(AL WALAJA, Occupied Palestine) - Our group of 5 Israelis and two Palestinians were roughed up by Israeli apartheid soldiers then abducted while filming the destruction of the land of Al-Walaja.

In my case, the officer recognized me and came straight at me pushing me to the ground, kicking me then asking his soldiers to take me away.

Shireen was taken later by the invading fascist soldiers in the village.

It hurts so much to see how slowly the old trees are being uprooted to build a wall on village land that will separate the villagers from their agricultural fields.

In this case, trees and An agricultural road (built with European funding) were being destroyed in the village.

The oldest tree in the Bethlehem district, an olive tree that is perhaps 3-4,000 year old is also in the path of the apartheid wall.

The Israeli soldiers working as subcontractors for land thieves and racists also raided the freedom theater in Jenin (founded by our friend and martyr Juliano Mer-Khamis) and abducted some of the workers there.

We ask everyone to write to politicians, media, and others to alert them of these persistent violations of basic human rights. We must intensify pressure via boycotts, divestments, and sanctions.

Request: Advise or give help for a 5 year old girl who had had a cochlear implant (inner ear) in 2007 and is now having an infection.

She needs either a new implant or removal/rehabilitation of the old implant and she also needs rehabilitation.

Any thoughts or ideas about how to proceed in this medical situation would be appreciated or if an institution or charity can take on this case. (the family is from a remote village and they were staying at my house for the past four days).
