To mark the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, Palestinian and foreign activists have destroyed parts of the Israel’s separation wall in a demonstration. Using only a lorry, they pulled down a two-metre cement block before being attacked by Israeli security forces with tear gas grenades.

According to the Stop the Wall Campaign website, a series of international events, under the banner, “Unite Against Apartheid” from 9 to 16 November, would be held to protest against the apartheid wall. In Australia, the groups, Australians for Palestine; and Women for Palestine would be picketing against Israel’s Jerusalem Quartet at farewell performances around the country.
