Since 2005, citizens of Bil’in have held weekly demonstrations against the building of the Israeli separation wall through the community’s agricultural lands and the encroachment of illegal settlements. The demonstrators are joined by Israeli and international peace activists, and have maintained a commitment to non-violent methods of resistance in spite of armed, military opposition that has resulted in many injuries and some deaths. These demonstrations are the subject of this documentary film, made by Emad Burnat, whose brother, Iyad Burnat, will give a talk, Non-Violent Popular Resistance in Palestine, 7:30 PM, Tuesday, January 29, at the same location.
