- Baalot @ Ramat Hovav-
7 baalot (a big brick made from dense straw covered with concrete) placed in front of the Ramat-Hovav main entrance. The Baalot marked with skeletons & question marks, act as a reminder of what is going on at Ramat-Hovav.

Date: November 2001

After a week all the Baalas were destroyed by a tractor sent by a nearby plant that is not interested in changing the situation at
