Thousands of Palestinians mark “Land Day”
Mar 31, 2006, 00:43

Occupied Jerusalem - Thousands of Palestinians on both sids of the “Green Line” (the former armistice line between the West Bank and 1948-Palestine (Israel) on Thursday marked Land Day, which commemorates the killing by Israeli police in 1976 of several Palestinians protesting the confiscation of their land by Zionist authorities.

Rallies and commemorative activities took place in several Arab towns in occupied Palestine, including Sakhnin, Nazareth and Rahat in the south. A demonstration also took place in East Jerusalem where protesters shouted slogans denouncing Jewish racism and land theft.

“No to the land thieves, no to the racist settlers,” one placard read. “Palestine is for the Palestinians” and “we will defend our land to the last drop of our blood” read other signs.

In East al-Qods, Zionist police violently attacked peaceful protesters, using batons, tear gas and stun grenades.

At least one protester was wounded and two others arrested, according to local sources.

Land Day was also marked in the West Bank where the Israeli apartheid regime is building a gigantic apartheid wall which Palestinians say is reducing their population centers to virtual detention camps.

Israel is also truncating the West Bank into enclaves and townships which are mostly cut off from each other.
