Global Day of Action for a World without Walls


CODEPINK is proud to partner with the Palestinian Grassroots Anti-apartheid Wall Campaign for the November 9, 2017 Global Day of Action for a World without Walls.

From Israel’s apartheid wall on Palestinian land to the US wall on the border with Mexico, we say NO to these monuments of expulsion, exclusion, oppression and discrimination. There are almost 70 walls across all continents. They are ripping through people’s lives and lands as they fortify often unilaterally defined borders and state control. They cause thousands of deaths every year and destroy means of livelihoods and hope for many more.

Fifteen years ago, Israel started building its 8-meter high wall on Palestinian occupied land. Seven hundred kilometers long, Israel’s apartheid wall is part of its state policy to confiscate over 60% of the West Bank and imprison the Palestinian people on less than 13% of their historical homeland. This is in addition to the wall surrounding and imprisoning of the Palestinian Gaza Strip since. Palestinians have never stopped resisting the illegal walls and continuous expulsion from their lands. In 2003 Palestinians called for November 9 – the day the Berlin Wall fell – as International Day against Israel’s apartheid Wall.

Actions currently being organized:

Albany, NY 5:30-7:30pm Townsend Park Facebook event
