"They're building a wall. A wall to keep
distant the terrible sound of the houses that crumble and the children
A wall to keep separate the truth from the lie."-Dave Rovics,

The conference began on April 21 with all Palestinian political factions represented and speakers included politicians, leaders of Popular Committees, Israeli activists, and international solidarity activists.
Due to a mainstream media blackout on the five-year struggle in Bil'in, most Americans are unaware of the thousands of nonviolent Palestinians and growing legions of Israeli and International activists who have been waging a nonviolent campaign of resistance to the construction of the route of Israel's Wall in the Occupied Territories and to end the occupation of Palestine.
