The 'Wall Caravan' for the International Action Week against the Apartheid Wall in the Netherlands collected 3,155 signatures in nine days, 9 – 17 november touring 29 cities all over the country!
The Wall Caravan was a co-project of the Netherlands Palestine Committee and 'Sloop de Muur' (Tear Down the Wall – SloopdeMur) with local support from activists across the country. At each stop signatures were collected for an action to force the Dutch Parliament to discuss the issue of sanctions against Israel, since it failed so far to seriously do so in spite of the ICJ verdict. The parliament is obliged to put any civic initiative on the agenda, if supported by at least 40,000 signatures. We are now more than halfway getting a firm boost this past actionweek.
