Israeli anarchists block Tel Aviv city centre

Basel Street, one of Tel Aviv’s hippest coffee shop centers, was blocked by 20 anarchists, using razor wire from the wall itself today at around 14:00.

The two rolls of razor wire were stretched across the street parallel to each other, in a formation reminding that of the wall, and red signs reading: “Mortal Danger-Military Zone. Any person who passes or damages the fence endangers his life”, also from the wall itself, were hanged on it. Flyers explaining Israel’s policy of restrictions on movement land-grab were passed around.

The action was carried to remind Tel Aviv’s café goers of everyday hardships of Palestinians, resulting from Israel’s apartheid policies and conduct in the Occupied Territories, and from the occupation itself. The activists urged Israelis to take responsibility of what is being done in their names, and force an end to Israeli occupation.

    The Fair Trade Movement in the United States has rallied for equal rights for workers, fair pay, and just and equitable negotiations with farmers of the Third World, such as Ethiopia and Venezuela, were much of the coffee of the world is grown. USFT and other Fair Trade organizations have had much success in persuading consumers to only buy Fair Trade Coffee and other products. A decade ago Fair Trade was unheard of in the States, now 63 million Americans base their purchasing decisions upon its effects on the world (source: Transfair U.S.A.)…Let’s do the same here in Israel!
    With the help of USFT ( in Washington D.C. we will be forming a chapter of United Students for Fair Trade here in Israel.
    If you are interested in being part of the formation of this group from the ground level email Leron at:
