*Iyad Burnat is head of the Bil’in Popular Committee and a leader in the
West Bank village’s non-violent popular resistance movement.   Since 2005
citizens of Bil’in have held weekly demonstrations against the building of
the Israeli separation wall through the community’s agricultural lands, and
the steady encroachment of illegal settlements. *****

** **

*The demonstrators are joined by Israeli and international peace activists,
and have maintained a commitment to non-violent methods of resistance in
spite of armed, military opposition by the IDF which has resulted in many
injuries and some deaths.*****

** **

*During his 2012-2013 American tour, Iyad will tell the stories of Bil’in
and life in the occupied West Bank, and talk about strategies for
non-violent popular resistance with a goal of peace and prosperity for all
people.*
