Some 30 internationals and 15 Israelis joined the local Palestinian demo in Bil'in against the wall and occupation. The demonstration started off non violently, with demonstrators chanting, opening the wall's gate, placing a banner and flags on the fence, and spending time in the area between the fences. But after a few minutes the soldiers decided that a peaceful demo is not what they're after, so they started shooting gas. For a while the gas dosage was relatively low, and the shabab threw few stones in return. But after the shabab had managed to return two unexploded gas canisters to their rightful owners and cover the soldiers in a cloud of gas, the soldiers barged in, with the usual accompanying flood of gas driving the demonstrators away. The Irish delegation kept things lively with their singing and their long, round voweled 'shout and roar', until after some more exchanges of gas and stones (with one demonstrator getting hit in the head by a stone) the demonstration was declared over and dispersed. The soldiers confiscated a banner, a Palestinian flag and an Irish flag.
