This weekend (February 21, 2004) the Traverse area peace and justice community showed its opposition to the Separation Wall being built by Israel and its support for the International Court of Justice February 23rd hearing on legality of the Separation Wall.

On Friday, February 20 Women in Black walked through downtown Traverse City with signs opposing the Wall. WIB invited men to join their ranks this week to hand out leaflets explaining the illegality of the Wall and its  devastating impact on the lives of Palestinians.

On Saturday, February 21 an anti-Wall brigade put on their boots, snow pants and gloves, grabbed their shovels and headed toward one of the main intersections in Traverse City: Union and Grandview Parkway.  Within the hour, the crew built a mock Separation Wall and Israeli military guard tower. With  fluorescent spray paint we wrote STOP ISRAELI WALL. Although only a small and symbolic step, the peace and justice community in Traverse City goes on record opposing the Separation Wall.

We also welcome any one whom this Separation Wall offends to tear it down. After that little bit of experience, head to Palestine and tear that one down too!

For more information on the Separation Wall:
Live video coverage of Internationa Court Justice hearings on Wall to be held from 23 to 25 February 2004 will be broadcast live and in full on the Court's official website (
