8th boy arrested from Bil’in last night…

June 30, 2009


Last night the IDF invaded Bil’in, yet again, and arrested another teenage boy.  The “reason” for his arrest was the fact that he was protesting the theft of his land. 

The IDF takes photographs of protestors at the weekly nonviolent demonstrations, and that may be the reason that they targeted the boys they did. 

Another possibility is that they arrest one, then coerce him into giving names of other boys who attend the protests-through many different means- torture, beating, etc…

The point is, these nonviolent protests are legal to everyone but the Israelis.  Nonviolently protesting the theft of your land should not be grounds for arrest!
