    Avatar joins the struggle in Bil'in

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     ayyadmed documents weekly protests in Bilin against an Israeli security barrier. The villagers have compared their situation to the popular film "Avatar" because of the barrier's proximity to their village. In the James Cameron movie, a group of people called the Na'vi defend themselves against a corporation trying to mine their land for resources, thus occupying their land. The Bilin protesters say the Israelis are occupying their land in a similar manner by constructing the barrier.
