Nabi Saleh Demonstrations - Palestine 2011

Every Friday the village of Nabi Saleh organizes a march to protest the 2009 confiscation of an important water source by the Israelis.
I went to this demo three weeks in a row. The Israeli army start with deadly projectiles and this can carry on for 8 hours. They often use live ammo and shoot at head hight with tear gas and rubber bullets. The army use a variety of weapons including the disgusting skunk water canon and a tear gas machine that can fire 25 canisters at once. 
The people in the village are very kind and it is sad to see the whole village being collectively punished in this way.
