"mariastango on Jul 26, 2011
En la comunidad de Ras Al Auja, Valle del Jordán, Palestina, declarada Zona C según los acuerdos de Oslo, bajo control territorial, administrativo y militar de Israel, tierras palestinas, un grupo de voluntarios se unen al Jordan Valley Solidarity Campaign y construyen con ladrillos de barro, hechos por los mismos voluntarios con miembros de la comunidad, una escuela para más de 250 niños. Esta escuela se llama Vittorio Arrigoni en honor al voluntario asesinado y la piedra fundamental fue colocada por Luisa Morgantini, del Partido Comunista y vicepresidenta del Parlamento Italiano.

In the community of Ras Al Auja, Jordan Valley, Palestine, defined as Area C according to the Oslo accords, under territorial, military and administrative control of Israel, Palestinian land, a group of volunteers join the Jordan Valley Solidarity Campaign and build with mud bricks, made by the volunteers with members of the community, a school for 250 children. This school is named Vittorio Arrigoni, in honor of the volunteer killed in Gaza and the cornerstone was laid by Luisa Morgantini of the Communist Party and vice president of the Italian Parliament.]

On Monday 25th the first brick was laid for a new school in the Jordan Valley.
Volunteers from the Jordan Valley Solidarity working with Ras Al Auja community members have been making mud bricks for the building during the last two weeks.
On Monday morning, during the much appreciated visit of Luisa Morgantini, the Italian Parliamentarian from the Communist Party, the Jericho Governor and a delegation of more than 50 Italian people, we officially inaugurated the building of the school which has been named “Vittorio Arrigoni” in memoriam of the Italian activist from ISM (International Solidarity Movement), murdered a few days ago in Gaza.
This school in Ras Al Auja will serve to educate more than 200 children who suffer from a lack of this service around. As Ras Al Auja is located in the Area C, building needs Israeli permission, but these permits either take a lot of years or are never given.
After an emotive moment full of hugs among the volunteers, all of them joined the work, adding one or more bricks to the walls of the school while singing the lyrics of traditional Bella Ciao or the Socialist International enforcing the rhythm and the spirit of this struggle for freedom.
Building a school in Area C, the school of “Vittorio”, means a step further in resistance.
