There is this one palestinian Village in the Westbank arguing with israeli Settlers over a Spring since 2009.
Every week there are symbolic Protests.
Our Journey started at the باب العمود Damascus Gate in Jerusalem by taking the Bus to Ramallah at 8 in the morning (continue).
After having a Coffee in Ramallah we continued our Travel into the North direction Nablus.

After a 40min ride on small Roads through the hilly Landscape we arrived at the Village.
Later we met a Villager who invited us into their home. In the House some kind of Press-Conference took place and we met a few israeli, german and american
Supporter of the Village. I recorded an Interview a Film-Crew from the US did with some Protesters (Start 1:00):
Speakers from the Minaret calling for a Prayer. Around Noon more and more People gathered in the Village-Center. Kids playing Games.
Even Children prepared for the Protest, wearing Masks and holding Signs showing the Faces of their Fathers who got arrested during further Protests.
40 Days ago one Protester was shot in the Face with a Teargas-Bullet and died.
This Day the Protesters remembered him with carrying his Picture in a golden Frame.
Near the Street you can see two military Jeeps.
It´s where the Spring is and the Protest wants to march to.
Flag of FATAH.
The IDF shot Teargas as soon as the Protesters tried to climb down the Hill to keep them on distance.
Water-Cannon loaded with some kind of butanoic acid (Buttersaeure). The smell was incredible.
