On June 4th, 2005,Signs of Truth, a group of Israeli and international activists acting in solidarity with local Palestinians, altered signs in the West Bank. The day was the 38th anniversary of the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Activists changed a sign to the largest settlement in the northern West Bank, Ariel, to say “stolen land” in Hebrew, Arabic and English.
Al Jazeera reports:
“Another sign that indicates the distance to Ariel from an Israeli checkpoint 12km away reminds drivers of the ongoing occupation and of the separation wall being built around Palestinian towns. “1967: Occupation; 2005: Apartheid Wall in Salfit” read the signs.”
