Women's peace event in Beit-Jala on the outskirts of Bethlehem, co-ordinated by the Women’s Group of the Parents Circle Families Forum. The Forum brings together families of those killed in the ongoing conflict who believe that by speaking openly of their loss, reconciliation and a permanent peace is possible in order to end to the bloodshed. More than 200 bereaved Palestinian and Israeli women turned up to spray freedom and peace slogans on a mock wall symbolising the Israeli West Bank separation barrier. Armed with wooden hammers, they beat the wall down into pieces. Finally, they marched as one, in silent protest along a slice of the real separation barrier, holding aloft banners demanding an end to the Israeli Occupation.
