Palestinians, international activists and members of a group based in Israel called Anarchists Against the Wall were able to break through the Israeli separation wall today for the first time. The demonstration began in the West Bank village of Kafr Zeita where the barrier separates the village from its traditional agricultural lands. The wall has been declared an illegal barrier by the World Court, and the decision was backed up by a U.N. resolution by 150 to 6, yet Israeli continues to construction.
