Watch: Avatars against the wall in Bil'in
Dozens choked on tear gas across the occupied West Bank on Friday, as weekly protests against Israel's separation barrier were carried out in a number of Ramallah-area villages and towns, Maan reported.
In Bil'in, protesters dressed up as creatures in the animated American film Avatar, which chronicles the trials of a fictional indigenous population known as the Na'vi struggling against colonialism on another planet.
Palestinian, Israeli and international activists were painted blue, with pointy ears and tales, resembling the Avatar characters.
"Like Palestinians, the Avatars fight imperialism, although the colonizers have different origins," said a statement from the Popular Struggle Coordination Committee. The Avatars' presence in Bil'in "symbolizes the united resistance to imperialism of all kinds."
