Calls in West Bank for broad participation in marking the Naksa

[ 03/06/2011 – 08:08 PM ]

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– A statement issued by the various Palestinian groups including unions and civil society as well as representatives of youth and women organisations called for broad participation in the marking of the 44th anniversary of the Naksa.

The groups called for extending the circle of protests to include tangent areas near the apartheid wall, roadblocks and bypass roads to reaffirm Palestinian people’s insistence on their inalienable rights, foremost of which is the right of return of refugees, the right to self-determination, independence and a sovereign state with Jerusalem as its capital.

They warned the occupation against violently quelling the peaceful protests especially with all the sabre rattling coming from the Israeli occupation government ahead of the anniversary.

They further called on international organisations to shoulder their responsibilities, stand by Palestinian rights and pressure Israel into halting its criminal measures against the Palestinian people and their land.

The groups also called for a special protest at the Qalandia roadblock on Sunday at 12:00 PM and for the Friday sermons to be about the anniversary and encourage people to participate in the peaceful protests.
