RAMALLAH, April 25, 2009 (WAFA)- Twenty five protesters were injured, Friday, following the end of the 4th Annual International Conference of Popular Resistance in Bilin.

 

Injuries ranged from light to moderate and most were caused by rubber coated steel bullets. Fadi Al-Arouri from Reuters news agency, Mohib Barghouti from Al-Haya newspaper and Israeli activist and filmmaker, Shai Pollack, all had their cameras broken by the Israeli army. The rest of the wounded are all from the village: Fadil Al Khatib, brothers Ahmed and Awada Abu Rahmah, brothers Riyad and Iyad Burnat, Khalid Al Khatib, Abdullah Abu Rahmah, Mohammed Al Khatib, Wael Fahmi, Basel Mansour, Tariq Al Khatib, Abdullah Yasin, Tamir Al Khatib, Nizar Abu Rahmah, Husam Al Khatib, Mohammed Nabil Abu Rahmah, Nour Yasin, Ibrahim Burant, Ahmad Abu Rahmah (Bassems Brother) and Adeeb Abu Rahmah who was detained by the army for three hours.

 

The Bilin conference this week was attended by a large number of international, Israeli and Palestinian activists.  Also at the conference were Luisa Morgantini, vice president of the EU Parliament; Mairead Maguire, a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate; Mustafa Al Barghouti, head of the Palestinian Initiative; Khalidah Jarrar, a member of the Palestinian Legislative Council. The demonstrators began their march after closing the conference.

 

They carried pictures of the martyr Bassem Abu Rahmah and succeeded in building a memorial for Bassem Abu Rahmah near the gate, despite a constant barrage of tear gas and rubber bullets fired by the Israeli army.

 

Luisa Morgantini stated, We succeeded to build the memorial for Bassem Abu Rahmah, as respect for his spirit. We will never forget him; he was a friend of everyone. We have to continue the popular resistance which has begun to expand to the Jordan valley, Al Maasarah, Nilin, and Jayyous.

 

Mairead Maguire said We came to Bilin more than five times and we went to Gaza also, we are going to continue our struggle to end the occupation and the siege. What happened in Bilin and losing Bassem is a tragedy to everyone. Lets all work together for peace and end the oppression and occupation. Maguire and Morgantini expressed their condolences to Bassems family.
