Demonstration on Friday 12.2 at 12 in Nabi Alias Qalqilya region

In area C Palestinian communities are discriminated and settlements get a preferred treatment. Palestinian movement is restricted by a complex set of physical and procedural barriers and most Palestinians cannot get building permits.

The seize of Palestinian land continues, and now under the pretext of transportation needs twenty six acres of private property are expropriated to build a new bypass. Hundreds of olive trees will be uprooted, small businesses will be destroyed or incur damages and movement in fields near the new bypass will be restricted.

Join us in protest in an effort to stop the road’s construction. The demonstration will start at Nabi Alias from which we will walk to the expropriated land. We will hear a review a meet local residents.
