2 Events with Anarchists Against the Wall–Jan. 6, Jan. 9

The first week in January, MARS is helping put on 3 events about the joint stuggle for Palestinian liberation.  Spread the word and join us!  The first event on Sunday, January 2 with local activist Ryan Olander is a fundraiser for MARS; the proceeds from these two following events will go to Anarchists Against the Wall and the Minnesota Break the Bonds Campaign.

Anarchists Against the Wall (AATW) has been at the forefront of the Israeli solidarity movement which has joined the Palestinian popular resistance to the wall. Come hear Gal Lugassi of AATW speak about their struggles.

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 popular 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.
