Since September 2000, Israel has maintained a “buffer zone” along the fence with Gaza, inside Gaza’s territory.
To that end, it has restricted the access of Palestinians to farmland that they own nearby.
Over the years, the military has occasionally changed the range of the area it considers off-limits to Palestinians, from 100 to 500 meters away from the fence.

Of course, solidarity has never been included in any code as an offense.
However, associative activists who are only helping people in very precarious situations, victims of dangerous, violent and even inhuman decisions, find themselves facing justice today.
With the introduction of a state of emergency, and in the context of the so-called “migratory crisis”, there has been a resurgence of prosecutions aimed at preventing the expression of solidarity with migrants, refugees, Roma and undocumented migrants. It is the support for all foreigners which tends to become suspect, the expression of the contestation of the policies being carried out which is assimilated with rebellion and the disturbance to public order.
Freedom, Bound is a multi-media exhibit that aims to historicize contemporary expressions and acts of Black-Palestinian solidarity within the rich legacy of a long established and dynamic international freedom struggle. The Freedom, Bound collection will feature key artifacts over decades of collective, transnational-work in pursuit of historic justice, with an initial focus on the chosen alliance between Black Americans and Palestinians. The exhibit’s curatorial framework employs a non-linear approach to history, displaying present and past expressions of solidarity simultaneously. The transhistorical presentation draws attention to the timeless resonance and inherent interconnectedness of struggles against oppression.
In Germany, the account of the group “Jewish Voice for a Just Peace in the Middle East” (Jüdische Stimme für gerechten Frieden in Nahost”) has been closed by the “Bank for Social Economy” (Bank fuer Sozialwirtschaft AG).
The Israeli government attempts to forbid any criticism of its policy, both inside in Israel and abroad. It pretends that all the people criticizing Israel are anti-Semitic.
In memory of Marah Diab 
For a moment, just imagine yourself in Gaza. You live in a city on its knees, in an isolated and narrow strip of land with another 1.8 million fellow citizens. 360 square kilometers of prison, no more. Your children still bear the scars of several wars in their minds - some on their bodies - as well as the harrowing memory of the bombs - including phosphorus bombs - from the summer of 2014.
(JTA) — The father of one of the victims of Wednesday’s terror attack at a Tel Aviv shopping center criticized the Israeli government for not doing enough to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
At the funeral Thursday for Ido Ben Ari, one of four people killed when two Palestinian terrorists opened fire at the Sarona Market in central Tel Aviv the previous evening, the father of the 42-year-old Coca-Cola executive criticized the government’s response, according to The Times of Israel.
Good evening everyone.
I thank the Waltham Forest Palestine Solidarity Campaign for having invited me.
Just to introduce myself, I was born in 1946, I am retired, I come from a Jewish family which escaped the Nazi holocaust, and I had a Jewish education up until my Bar Mitzvah. I want to point out that, as a Jew, I had a normal childhood, because at that time the Jewish community did not have paranoid tendencies like today, and my parents did not spend their time nagging me to honour the memory of the holocaust. I am an activist in the BDS Campaign in France, and since 2003 I am a member of UJFP, the French Jewish Peace Union, which supports the rights of the Palestinian people and participates in the BDS Campaign.
