Um Salamuna Demonstrates This Friday

17 January 2007

This Friday, January 19th, at 11am, the people of Um Salamuna will be joined by Palestinian activists from PSP committees in neighboring villages as well as international and Israeli activists as they again demonstrate against the construction of the Apartheid Wall on their land. The people will gather at the edge of the village and proceed to the land currently being bulldozed for Friday’s prayer.

In a demonstration Monday, two people were injured when the Israeli Army beat peaceful demonstrators. Yesterday, the head of the city council in Um Salamuna said that they would continue to peacefully demonstrate so that “the world knows that we want peace and they are stealing our land.”
