Stop the Wall Campaign

Separation Wall in Palestine.The Stop the Wall Campaign is a coalition of Palestinian non-governmental organizations and community-based “popular committees,” youth and women that mobilize and coordinate efforts on local, national and international levels. These efforts are focused on stopping and dismantling the Wall in the West Bank, resisting Israeli occupation, and defending Palestinian communities’ rights to their land and water.

In recent years, Stop the Wall has been working to develop and strengthen bodies such as the Land Defense Coalition, which aims to strengthen the will and determination of people from Palestinian villages which face expulsion and confiscation of land – such as South Hebron, the Northern Jordan Valley, the eastern part of Nablus and many other locations in the West Bank, particularly the Bedouin areas, including those in Jerusalem.

The campaign’s efforts are focused on stopping and dismantling the Separation Wall, and opposing Israel’s policy of land and resource confiscation from Palestinians living under occupation. The Wall’s route currently snakes through the West Bank cutting off many communities from one another and from their agricultural land, and grabs precious land and water resources away from Palestinians. The World Court in the Hague ruled in 2004 that the Wall violates international law.
