A Palestinian displays a sign “stop the killing” during a demonstration against the Wall in the West Bank village of Al Ma’sara on 12.03.2010. Protesters walked through the village on the rythm of the drums. They were blocked by barbwire put by Israeli soldiers on the main exit and entrance of the village. The demonstrators pulled the barbwire and levied it up, allowing some demonstrators to pass through it.
