Bil'in

Villages across the West Bank protest weekly against the construction route of the separation wall, which annexes Palestinian land and places Palestinians in walled communities under Israeli military control. In this photo, demonstrators at the non-violent protest in Bil'in village are met with volleys of tear gas launched by Israeli Defence Forces (IDF). Despite IDF regulations, soldiers shoot high velocity tear gas canisters directly at protesters, causing regular injuries. On this day an Israeli protesting in solidarity with the Palestinians suffered a fractured skull and internal bleeding.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
