Pambazuka - Palestine and Western Sahara

Pambazuka - Palestine and Western Sahara
‘Little is said about the wall that the United States has raised on the Mexican border and little is said of the fences in Ceuta and Melilla. Almost nothing is spoken of the wall in the West Bank, which perpetuates Israel's occupation of Palestinian lands, and yet it will be a little over 15 times longer than the Berlin wall. And nothing, nothing at all, is spoken of the wall of Morocco that has perpetuated Morocco’s occupation of the Western Sahara for 20 years. This wall, land-mined from end to end and guarded by thousands of soldiers from end to end, measures 60 times longer than the Berlin wall. Why are these walls so high-flown and so mute???
