The European initiative against settlements and the wall, based in The Hague, announced that it was preparing to launch a media and awareness campaign, against the apartheid wall built by the Israeli occupation on Palestinian territories.

The European initiative against settlements and the wall, based in The Hague, announced that it was preparing to launch a media and awareness campaign, against the apartheid wall built by the Israeli occupation on Palestinian territories in the West Bank occupied in 1967, and against the escalated expansion of settlements, under the slogan "No to the wall ... no to settlements".

Amin Abu Rashid, head of the initiative, said in a statement that the campaign that will include sit-ins and seminars and the use of the technology of social media, will be launched on the eighth anniversary of the decision of the International Court of Justice in The Hague against the separation wall and which demanded the occupation to remove it.
 
The campaign aims at condemning and protesting against the escalation of settlement projects in the occupied Palestinian territories, explained Abu Rashid.

He added that the campaign will begin on 1st July, and end on 9th of the same month, pointing out that it will include a meeting that the Initiative will be holding with human rights organizations and UN to hand them over a study on the effects of the wall after eight years of the issuance of the ICJ ruling. Meanwhile other seminars about the wall and settlements will take place in several Arab and foreign countries.

Abu Rashid stressed that the European initiative will seek through this campaign to deliver a message to the President of the ICJ  in The Hague in which stresses on the need to find an international executive body able to enforce the implementation of the ICJ ruling as the occupation is neglecting and violating it.

According to the head of the "European initiative against the wall and settlements", the campaign will emphasize on the need to compel the occupation authorities to comply with the international legitimate resolutions, to stop its violations of international law, to demolish the apartheid wall, to halt all settlement and Judaization projects, especially in East al-Quds ('Jerusalem'), and to fix all the damage caused by the construction of the wall, including in the occupied city and its surroundings.,

The European initiative against the apartheid wall and settlements, based in The Hague in the Netherlands, was established on 1st of June 2010. It is a gathering of many institutions and human rights organizations operating in the European continent, which reject the occupation’s apartheid wall built in the West Bank and the settlements built on Palestinian territories.
