Monthly Review

Abstract: 

One of the main accomplishments of the Israeli government’s bombing and invasion of the Gaza Strip last winter was to inspire new vitality within leftist and peace groups in solidarity with the Palestinian struggle for justice and liberation. This wave of activity has continued after the supposed ceasefire, with demonstrations and direct actions from New York to Los Angeles, Paris, Jaffa, and Tel Aviv.

In Bil'in last week, according to the Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz Daily, "More than 20 activists were wounded Friday as Israel Defense Forces troops fired rubber bullets and tear gas grenades at protesters marking three years of struggle against the West Bank separation fence in the West Bank town of Bil'in. More than 1,000 people attended the milestone demonstration Friday." http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/957107.html
