Ramallah, 9 november 2009

Palestinian and international activists pull down a concrete panel, part of the controversial Israeli barrier, during a protest marking the 20th anniversary of the toppling of the Berlin Wall, in the al-Amari refugee camp in the West Bank city of Ramallah November 9, 2009. Palestinians are using the anniversary to press their campaign against Israel's "wall" on territory they want for a state. Israel launched the barrier, which is mostly razor-wire fence interspersed with concrete barricades, in 2002 during a wave of Palestinian suicide bombings. While such attacks have dramatically dropped since, Israel has come under international censure for the barrier's de facto annexation of occupied West Bank land.
