The fighting in Gaza is hopefully coming to a halt, but the continuing oppression of the Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank continues. For years now the Anarchists Against the Wall group has been working with others, both Israeli and Palestinians, against the more oppressive aspects of the occupation. An Israeli activist from AAtW is soon to begin a North American tour to both rise public awareness and to gather funds for the legal costs involved in what the group does. Here is the announcement from the A-Infos website.
Israeli Anarchist tours North America:
A member of [the Israeli] Anarchists Against the Wall (AATW), Shachaf Polakow, will be embarking on a speaking-tour in the US and Canada, from Feb 1st to March 9th, in order to raise money for the mounting legal costs of our activities. The funds are more desperately needed now, as an internal assault on dissidents is waged by the state these days, along with its assault on Gaza.Detailed information on dates and locations will follow soon.

And here's the announcement of the first stop of the tour.
