Protesting at Bil'in village
Today i went to a protest in Bil'in village, which has had nearly half it's land seized by Israel for a planned settlement. There has been some really impressive popular mobilization in Bil'in against this in the last few years.
The protest was eventful and it was a day i will never forget. I will be writing up a full report with pictures in the next couple of days.
I made my way to Ramallah in the morning and then bumped into some activists from Spain and France who were also going to the protest. We took a shared taxi out to Bil'in which drove through some stunningly beautiful hills.
