‘Palestinian Land Day’
by Patrick O'Brien
— Yom al-Ard —
“Palestinian Land Day” — Yom al-Ard — commemorates the 1976 killing by Israeli forces of six young Palestinians as they protested the Israeli government’s seizure of Palestinian land. The day has become a symbol of Palestinian resistance to land theft, colonization, occupation and apartheid.
On this, its 36th Anniversary, thousands of Palestinians and supporters from all over the world will be joining a Global March to Jerusalem in opposition to Israel’s apartheid and ethnic cleansing . . . to demand access to Jerusalem for all peoples, and to uphold Palestinian rights under international law, including refugees’ right of return.
