Comedian Mark Thomas walked the length of Israel's Apartheid Wall on both sides!
July 2014 marks 10 years since the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled the construction of Israel's Apartheid Wall in the occupied Palestinian West Bank illegal under international law.
The ICJ ruled that Israel is legally obliged to dismantle the Wall and to make reparations for all damaged caused. Yet construction continues to this day, devastating every aspect of Palestinian life.
The ICJ also ruled that third states are under an obligation not to recognise, aid or assist the illegal situation resulting from the construction of the Wall. The British government must live up to its obligations under the ICJ ruling.

Palestine is facing an unprecedented humanitarian crisis. The UN reports that 70% of Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza are now living in acute poverty, a figure comparable to poverty levels in sub-Saharan Africa. Over 50% are now dependent on food aid.
