Hagar met n. from Dir El Ruson who told her about the
demonstration which had taken place that morning at gate 624 as a
protest against the DCO which will not give the farmers permits to work
their lands. This is not the first time but this morning there was a
Palestinian TV crew, Fajar, and N. said that the are going to show this
documentary this evening at 9.00. I will get a cd from the reporter.

At
the exit of Tulkarm there is no line and few cars. At the entrance
there is much traffic but it passes swiftly with only a random checked
and Israeli cars also enter.

On the way to Jubara we see no cars at Ar-Ras and decide not to enter.
