Bil‘in to hold mass demo this Friday in protest of recent house demolition

12:00 Nov 30 2011 Bil'in village, west of Ramallah

The demonstration will protest the demolition of the 'Bil‘in Outpost' by Israeli forces last Monday. The structure was built in 2005 on lands then sequestered by the Wall in order to assert ownership of the land and expose illegal construction in the nearby settlement ...

The path of the Wall has since been rerouted, and the structure stood on lands supposedly returned to the villagers, who were outraged by its destruction on Monday. Mohammed Khatib of the Bil'in Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements said, "It is a mockery of justice that the settlers' houses - built on our stolen land - were retroactively approved, but our building was knocked down as if we are the criminals. If this isn't apartheid, I don't know what is."
