Anarchists Against the Wall (AATW) is a direct action group that was established in 2003 to resist the construction of the wall Israel is building on Palestinian land in the Occupied West Bank. The group works in cooperation with Palestinians in a joint popular struggle against the occupation. Since its formation, the group has participated in thousands of demonstrations and direct actions against the wall specifically, and the occupation generally, all over the West Bank.

Since 2004 AATW activists joined thousands of demonstrations in dozens of villages throughout the West Bank. Starting in Jayyous, which was the first village to rise up against the construction of the wall in September 2002 AATW continued on to many other villages. Those included Budrus, Biddu, Beit Liqqiya, and Bil'in, which became a symbol of the popular resistance to the wall for its relentless, already five year old and still ongoing, weekly demonstrations. Lately AATW has joined the struggle in Ni'ilin, Maasara, Nabi Saleh, and Sheikh Jarrah in east Jerusalem.
