Land Day March 30th: Palestinian and worldwide actions planned

Posted in Miscellaneous by beyondtheborder on March 30, 2009

Land Day began 32 years ago, on March 30th, 1977, when Israeli forces attacked a non-violent demonstration against widescale land confiscation in the Galilee, in northern Israel. On that day, Israeli forces killed 6 Palestinians, injured 96 and arrested 300. Palestinians inside Israel, the West Bank and Gaza as well as refugee camps in nearby Arab countries declared the day to be ‘Land Day’, to commemorate the loss of Palestinian land, which is still ongoing to create and expand the state of Israel.

Rallies are planned in towns across the West Bank, Jerusalem, and in the Galilee, in the north of Israel.
