Palestine - Hundreds of Palestinian, Israeli, and international demonstrators prevented trucks loaded with Israeli garbage from dumping their haul in Palestinian territory near the West Bank town of Nablus. It was the first known incident in which Israel attempted to dump their garbage beyond the Green Line since 1967. The protest was organized by members of Anarchists Against the Wall, green movements, as well as Palestinians from the West Bank. Israel has planned to deposit 10,000 tons of garbage from the Dan and Sharon regions every month in what was known as the Abu Shusha quarry.
