Occupy London: A Year on from the St Paul's Cathedral Eviction

Follow us A bitter winter had cleared many from their tents, and the threat of a clash with police was enough for some others to follow. Romanesque columns stood sturdy, like stone sentries guarding the wealthy church behind, silently conveying the message from God’s representatives inside to those still left in the cold outside: you are not welcome here. It was a message shared by Britain’s high court, which had ruled against swansong appeals by the tents’ final occupants and authorised their eviction from the hard floor in front of Sir Christopher Wren’s greatest creation, and the London Stock Exchange to the side of it in Paternoster Square – the real target of the shivering protesters

Israel removes anti-settlement tent camp in West Bank

Published January 17, 2013

Associated Press

Jan 11, 2013: Palestinians, together with Israeli and foreign activists, stand near newly-erected tents in an area known as E1 at the settlement of Ma’aleh Adumim, near Jerusalem.AP

JERUSALEM A spokesman says Israeli police have taken down a West Bank tent camp pitched by Palestinians to protest Israeli plans to build a large Jewish settlement there.

The settlement near Jerusalem would have more than 3,400 apartments and drive a wedge between the eastern sector of the city and the West Bank, war-won territories the Palestinians want for their state.

Palestinian protesters pitched two dozen tents on the site marked for construction last week, but were dragged away by Israeli troops two days later. On Wednesday, Israel’s high court canceled an injunction that had barred police from removing the tents, but said there would be further discussion on the protesters’ right to be in the area.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said on Thursday that police removed the tents late Wednesday.

Palestinian protesters evicted from West Bank site

JERUSALEM (AP) Palestinian protesters who pitched tents at a strategic West Bank site to protest plans to build a Jewish housing project there were evicted early Sunday, police said.

Palestinian activists erected tents in the area known as E-1 on Friday saying they wanted to “establish facts on the ground” to stop Israeli construction in the West Bank. The Palestinian activists were borrowing a phrase and a tactic, usually associated with Jewish settlers, who believe establishing communities means the territory will remain theirs once structures are built.

Palestinian activist Abdullah Abu Rahma said the protesters hoped to repitch their tents to continue their protest. “Today, we will see if we can return,” he said.

Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said police evicted about 100 protesters from the site early Sunday morning after a court decision authorizing their removal. He did not know which court had allowed the eviction.

Haaretz reported that the eviction was carried out despite a temporary High Court injunction preventing it.

Rosenfeld said no arrests were made during the half hour operation and that no injuries were sustained on either side. He said the tents were not dismantled and that a decision on that would be made later in the day.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday evening ordered roads closed leading to the area and had the military declare a closed military zone and shut off access. Netanyahu’s office said that the state was petitioning the Supreme Court to rescind an earlier injunction blocking the evacuation.

Israel announced it is moving forward with the E-1 settlement after the U.N. recognized a de facto state of Palestine in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem in November.

Palestinians say E-1 would be a major blow to their statehood aspirations as it blocks east Jerusalem from its West Bank hinterland. Palestinians are demanding these areas, along with Gaza, for their future state.

Activists said they wanted to build a village called Bab al-Shams at the site.

Israel evacuates Palestinians from tent outpost in West Bank

E1, West Bank (Reuters) – Israeli security forces evacuated about 100 Palestinians early on Sunday from an outpost of tents pitched in an area of the occupied West Bank that Israel has earmarked for a new settlement.

Israel’s Supreme Court ruled on Friday that the Palestinian outpost, built in the geographically sensitive area known as E1, could remain for six days while the issue of the removal of the tents was being discussed.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in the meantime, ordered those gathered there to be evacuated. A police spokesman said the court allowed for the removal of the protesters even if the tents, for now, will stay.

Netanyahu’s pledge last November to build settlements on E1 caused an outcry, with European diplomats warning it could kill off any hope of creating a contiguous Palestinian state.

The prime minister’s office said in a statement on Saturday that the government was petitioning the court to retract its ruling on the outpost, and had instructed security forces to block off roads leading to the rocky desert terrain.

Hours later, Israeli police and border guard officers entered the compound and told a crowd of about 100 to leave the 20 large, steel-framed tents that were erected a day earlier in an effort to preserve the land for a future Palestinian state.

Those protesters who refused to leave were carried down the hill by Israeli officers, but there was no violence.

“Everyone was evacuated carefully and swiftly, without any injuries to officers or protesters,” said police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld.

The encampment’s name, “Bab el Shams,” which means “Gateway to the Sun” in Arabic, was taken from a novel by Lebanese writer Elias Khoury that tells the history of the Palestinians through a love story. Earlier, the writer called the protesters in solidarity.

For years, Israel froze building in E1, which currently houses only a police headquarters, after coming under pressure from former U.S. President George W. Bush.

Occupy London protesters lose eviction appeal bid

Anti-capitalist protesters on Wednesday lost their bid to challenge orders to evict them from outside St Paul's Cathedral in London, leaving authorities free to clear the site. England's Court of Appeal dismissed the demonstrators' application for permission to challenge last month's High Court ruling that they must disband the camp, which has been on the pavement outside the landmark since October 15. “We accept that there is a right to assemble and protest on the highway, but it is by no means an unfettered right,” said judge David Neuberger.
