Apartheid Wall Street Theatre

Chris | 12.05.2007 21:21 | Palestine | Sheffield

At the march and rally for Palestine held in Sheffield on 12 May 2007 a mock up of an Israeli checkpoint was created and people queued up to be abused.

Disillusioned kid summed it up quite well in his posts about the event:

"During the speeches, a “checkpoint” was set up to try and convey the realities of Palestinian life. Participants stood in line waiting to have their papers checked by soldiers. Somehow I suspect that in reality Palestinians don’t have to stop the wall blowing down in the wind, although as a piece of street theatre it seemed quite effective."
