Demonstration against the Wall in Jerusalem

On the day the International Court in The Hague started its hearing on the Separation Wall, the "Israeli Coalition against the Wall" raised an "Israeli Voice against the Wall".

About 700 activists of Gush Shalom, Ta'ayush, Yesh Gvul, the Women's Coalition for Peace and others, took part in the demonstration near thePrime Minsiter's residence, only some 200 meters from the place where a day before a suicide bomber had blown up a bus. "The Wall will not bring security, it will only bring more attacks," said Oren Medicks, one of ther speakers.

"It is important for us to show to the world that there is a significant part of Israeli public opinion that opposes this monstrous Wall," Uri Avnery of Gush Shalom said to the press.

At the center of the demonstration a "wall" was set up. At the height of the event, the demonstrators attacked the wall and destroyed it within seconds.

That morning, a petition against the wall, initiated by the Coalition and signed by almost 1000 Israelis, was published in the papers. Also that morning Gush Shalom published an ad calling for removal of the wall erected on Palestinian land. It said that a wall would have neen acceptable if it had been set up on the Green Line and as a temporary measure, until peace was achieved.
