GUSH SHALOM pob 3322, Tel-Aviv 61033

August 5, 2003

[We have been celebrating too early when we thought that the home of

Hani and Munira Amer and their six children would be spared

encirclement by The Wall...]

With bulldozers less than 10 meters away from the threatened house

at Mes'ha, the army is right now arresting the 40 international and

Israeli peace activists who spent the night there - among them Oren

Medicks of Gush Shalom, and CO Dror Boymel and five other Israelis.

Other activists are from the US, Britain, France, Italy, Germany

Sweden and Japan. The activists who sit in a circle singing are

dragged one by one.

An effort is under way to organize a new group to go there. In case you

want to join, contact Dorothy 09-9584804, 054-507804
