TEAR GAS FATALITY IN PALESTINE

 

A demonstration is being held this Friday (16th) in the village of Nabi Saleh near Ramallah, outside Jerusalem, in commemoration with Mustafa Tamini. Mustafa Tamini was a 28 year old Palestinian, resident of Nabi Saleh, that was hit in the face on Friday (9th) by a gas canister shot by the Israeli army. He died the next day in hospital. The fatality was a result of a weekly peaceful demonstration against the Israeli occupation held by Anarchists against the Wall (peaceful until the Israeli army get involved). The army shot directly at the Mustafa from mere metres away and hit him in the eye. Footage of the protest on the 9th can be viewed on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_RcibVRrT_4

The memorial demonstration being held in his name is being attended by hundreds of local people, international activists and journalists. The army was soon to follow. Protesters sit on the floor as the army arrives. The army have started deploying mass amounts of tear gas at time of press.

Being raided, arrested, dragged through the legal system and having my property taken from me (including my photo album because it had a "hunt sabs" sticker on it and my notebook for my uni degree in criminology) just for campaigning seems over the top and has been pretty stressful. But it's not going to stop me from fighting for what I believe in and against what I disagree with. This isn't for ego, nor for fame, it's for the exploited and the vulnerable.SOCPA 7 defendant - Emma
