Anarchists Against the Wall briefly block Tel Aviv street
About 20 activists from the Anarchists Against the Fence organization on Thursday briefly blocked Basel Street in north Tel Aviv with a piece of barbed wire fence taken from the separation fence. Signed hanging from the barbed wire, also taken from the separation fence, stated: “Mortal danger - military zone: Any person who passes or damages the fence endangers his life.”
The act of protest created a traffic jam at the site, and police forces were called to the scene, but the activists dispersed before police arrived. The activists said they wanted to bring the daily Palestinian reality to the residents of Tel Aviv to remind them of the movement restrictions and land theft taking place in their name only a few kilometers away.
