The Iron Wall

Posted by Dave (The Void) on November 9, 2007

We mark Palestine Solidarity Week with this excellent documentary (57 mins), looking at the network of settlements used by Israel to control – and to annex – vast sections of the West Bank, and the apartheid wall that consolidates them.

The maps shown in the video are a few years out of date now; continued settlement has further fragmented the West Bank and the proposed E-1 bloc threatens to definitively annexe East Jerusalem and split the West Bank in two.

For more information, see StopTheWall.org. Also, a small donation could go a long way towards replacing the Palestinian houses (Israeli Commitee Against House Demolitions) and trees (The Olive Cooperative) destroyed by the occupiers’ bulldozers.
