Leaders march against separation wall

Scores of people marched through Beit Jala to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the International Court of Justice’s opinion that construction of the wall is “contrary to international law.” Organized and led by the ELCJHL Lutheran Church of the Reformation, the march capped a week of workshops, demonstrations and soccer matches to the hardships created by Israel’s construction of the separation wall.
