[Limerick, Israeli Apartheid Week 2012] Bil'in Organiser Iyad Burnat on non-violent resistance to Israeli Apartheid

category limerick | rights, freedoms and repression | event notice author Thursday February 16, 2012 13:24author by Kev - IPSC Report this post to the editors

As part of Israeli Apartheid Week 2012, the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign is honoured to host a talk and film screening by Iyad Burnat, a leader of the Bil段n Popular Committee Against the Wall. Iyad will talk about the ongoing civil resistance campaign, both in Bil段n and in other areas like Nabi Saleh, Nil段n, Budrus and Sheikh Jarrah. Born in 1973, Iyad Burnat is the head of the Bil段n popular committee and Friends of Freedom and Justice and will be a familiar figure to the many Irish who have travelled to Bil段n over the past number of years.

The event will take place at 8pm on Tuesday 21st February 2012, in the Absolute Hotel, Sir Harry痴 Mall, Limerick City (map here): http://www.absolutehotel.com/directions

About Bil段n

Bil段n has been at the forefront of the non-violent resistance to Israel痴 illegal Apartheid Wall and policies in the occupied Palestinian territories, and has held weekly Friday demonstrations of locals, Israelis and international activists since 2005. During the course of the struggle its residents have faced severe repression at the hands of the Israeli, including frequent night raids and detentions (including of children). At least two people have been killed, and scores injured, during the Friday demos.

In June 2011 Bil段n痴 activists scored a major victory when it was announced that the wall in Bil段n, which was stealing some 480 acres of village land to accomodate the illegal Israeli colonial settlement of Modi段n Illit, would be partially rerouted (four years after the Israeli Supreme Court ordered it to be).

While continuing to fight for the remaining 1350 dunams (330 acres) that are effectively annexed to the settlement of Modi段n Illit, the Bil段n Popular Committee announced a new strategy of building community and public buildings on lands that were given back as a way to assert their possession of them.

The regained land is designated as Area C, over which Israel retains complete control of both security and administrative matters. Due to this fact, it is nearly impossible for Palestinians to receive building permits in area C. Palestinian structures built without permit in Area C are often demolished by Israeli authorities and are almost never retroactively whitewashed. In contrast, illegal and unpermitted settlement construction is often retroactively issued the required construction permits, as was the case in the Matityahu East neighborhood of the Modi段n Illit Settlement, which was built on Bil段n痴 lands.

This event is organised by the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC) as one of a series of events taking place around Ireland during international Israeli Apartheid Week 2012 (20 27 February).

I'm not saying the Bil'in folk don't have the right to resist BUT it's hardly "non-violent" resistance when it resulted in an Israeli soldier losing an eye.
