Parents Seek Justice


The parents of U.S. peace activist Tristan Anderson, critically injured by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank, have asked Israel to take "full responsibility" for the
shooting. Anderson, who was hit in the head with a high velocity teargas canister while protesting against a so-called "Apartheid Wall" that cuts Palestinians off from their land, remains in a coma; his parents say they have not yet been contacted by any Israeli official.

Said Michael Anderson, "It is ironic that the country in which he was shot is a democracy where it is supposed to be a duty for everyone to follow their conscience. "
