Tear Down This Wall!

As the world marked the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin
Wall, activists in the West Bank enacted their own liberation by
symbolically tearing down pieces of the wall that encloses two million
Palestinians. Near Ramallah, hundreds of protesters in Nilin and the
Qalandiya refugee camp managed to knock down sections of wall. In both
actions, the Israeli army arrived to fire tear gas at the crowd. Video and photos here.
