Bilin activist: "Words are not enough"

Iyad Burnat and Jody McIntyre writing from Bilin, occupied West Bank, Live from Palestine, 14 December 2009

".....One of the important elements of our struggle is the international volunteers who come to stay in the village. They are our messengers to the outside world, and it is so important for them to tell our story in their own countries, in order to counter the strength of Israeli propaganda in the mainstream media.

But words are not enough. We need people to be taking direct action, both here, and in their own countries against the embassies and governments who support this occupation. "
