Anarchists Against the Wall

Anarchists Against the Wall (AATW) is a direct action group that was established in 2003 in response to the construction of the wall Israel is building on Palestinian land in the Occupied West Bank. The group works in cooperation with Palestinians in a joint non violent struggle against the occupation.

Since its formation, the group has participated in hundreds of demonstrations and direct actions against the wall specifically, and the occupation generally, all over the West Bank. All of AATW's work in Palestine is coordinated through villages' local popular committees and is essentially Palestinian led.

As the number of Israeli activists joining Palestinian popular resistance gradually increases, the Israeli government has escalated its legal campaign against anti occupation activists, and specifically against anti-wall activists.

Since 2003, hundreds have been arrested and dozens of indictments have been filed. The heavy load of the legal persecution and operational expenses such as communications, transportation and legal expenses have already amounted to a debt of over $34,000 (US), and still rising

If you're closely affiliated with AATW, you might want to respond to my spurious allegations and put me in my place on this thread.
