» More information

We're having a peaceful rally in solidarity with the Palestinian people on the 30th. This rally will coincide with the Global March to Jerusalem, which is promised to be the largest nonviolent solidarity action with the Palestinians. The march will confirm that the policies and practices of the racist Zionist state of Israel against Palestine and its people, are a crime not only against Palestinians but against all humanity.

The Global March to Jerusalem is a world-wide movement which will coalesce into a global day of action on March 30, 2012, which is Palestinian Land Day. On that day, within the 1948 Green Line in occupied Palestine, Arab and Jewish Palestinians will march to Jerusalem. In the West Bank and Gaza, tens of thousands of Palestinians will gather at their closest border points to Jerusalem to demonstrate. In the border countries of Jordan and Lebanon, tens of thousands will go by motorcades to protest at safe points on their borders nearest Jerusalem. From Indonesia, a land convoy will pass through India, Pakistan, Iran, and Turkey, to arrive in Beirut to join the demonstration in Lebanon on March 30. Around the world, from Djakarta to San Francisco, solidarity actions will take place to support the demands of the GMJ: stop the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from Jerusalem; protect the non-Jewish places of worship and open unrestricted access to them; support the right of return of the Palestinians to a liberated Palestine with its capital at Jerusalem.
