Bil'in & Na'alin will be closed military zones from 8am-8pm on Fridays for the next 6 months
In a move the Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz called “seriously anti-democratic", the Israeli Army just declared the villages of Bil'in and Na'alin closed military zones from 8am-8pm on Fridays for the next six months. For five years, Friday protests with Palestinian, Israeli and international activists have made these towns centers of unarmed resistance to occupation.

Now it has been announced that Israeli activists in the villages during those hours will be arrested, foreigners will be deported, and Palestinians from other villages will be jailed.

Today, the new repressive policy of the Israeli Army will be tested by Palestinian, Israeli and international nonviolent protesters.

JVP is partnering with local activists who have already started Twittering from the closed areas. You can follow multiple activists Tweets here: (you don't need a Twitter account to read along.)
