In November, Israeli peace activists took to the streets in protest at the Israeli authorities' recent evictions of over 50 Palestinians including at least 20 children from their homes in East Jerusalem. The policies of evictions and house demolitions are key to Israel's policy of asserting demographic and political dominance over East Jerusalem, which it occupied in 1967.

The demonstrators made a noisy, colourful show of solidarity with the Ghawi and Hannoun families, who were evicted in August and live at the sharp end of Israel's occupation. The Israelis were accompanied by EAs and international activists. Photos: EAPPI.
