-Mansour Mansour: Palestinian activist from the West Bank village of Biddu, near Jerusalem
-Shai Pollak: Israeli activist and filmmaker, director of the documentary "Bil'in My Love" and member of Israel's Anarchists Against the Wall
The village of Bil'in's campaign of creative, nonviolent resistance to Israel's wall & settlements inspired the New York campaign to boycott settlement builders & NYC developers Lev Leviev & Shaya Boymelgreen. Leviev & Boymelgreen built settlement homes on Bil'in's land.
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
