Bil’in Conference

The Bil’in struggle against the wall and against the confiscation of land from Palestinians to build Israeli settlements is a good model for future struggle against Israeli apartheid.  It is a struggle that includes Israeli and Palestinian people side by side and it has on its banner the clear message of a non violent struggle.

The Bil’in conferences, of which I was able to attend one, the 2007 conference, is a good concept that is clearly catching on and getting attention.  It will hopefully be more of an anti apartheid/pro democracy event in the future. As more people realize that that has to be the objective of the struggle: A secular democracy in our shared homeland, equal rights for all Palestinians and Israelis,a constitution drafted by both sides.
