A week in photos: December 6-12

Mustafa Tamimi is remembered in Nabi Saleh and Tel Aviv, where thousands marched for human rights; actions for animal and housing rights; an eye on settlement expansion; and more. Activestills images tell the stories of the week.

Palestinian and Israeli activists hold a poster asking “Who Killed Mustafa Tamimi?” during the weekly protest against the occupation in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh, December 7, 2012. Tamimi was killed on December 9, 2011, when he was shot in the face with a tear gas canister at close range by Israeli soldiers. Also pictured on the poster is the soldier who killed Tamimi. No one responsible for Tamimi’s death has been brought to justice to this day. (photo by: Oren Ziv/ Activestills.org)

Activists with Zochrot, an organization dedicated to educating Israelis about the Nakba, in which Palestinians were forced from their homes in 1948, carry “returnee documents” promoting the right of return for Palestinian refugees, during the annual human rights march in Tel Aviv, December 7, 2012. The UN included the right of return at the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on December 10, 1948. Only a day later, the UN passed Resolution 194 calling for the return of all Palestinian refugees to their homes as soon as possible. (photo by: Ryan Rodrick Beiler/Activestills.org)

A shelter for sheep built from old furniture in a Bedouin camp in the E1 area between Jerusalem and the Israeli West Bank settlement of Maale Adumim (background), on December 11, 2012. Israel has approved the building of 3,000 settler homes in E1, a plan that has been on hold for years due to pressure from the U.S. and EU. Should the construction go ahead it would close off East Jerusalem from the West Bank. All Israeli settlements built on occupied Palestinian territory are considered illegal under international law.
