29 Years And Counting…

Today marks the 29th anniversary of Land Day.
Land Day has been observed since 1976 when Israeli Arabs launched a strike on 30 March in which six Arabs were killed in clashes with security forces after a government decision to expropriate land in Galilee.
The event, held for the past 29 years, has been observed by Israel's large Arab minority each year to protest against ongoing discrimination and the appropriation of their land by the Jewish majority.
This year, Israel's Arab minority will hold a central rally in an unrecognized Bedouin village in the Negev to commemorate Land Day.
The rally will be held in Abu Tlul, an unrecognized Bedouin village that is home to 3000 people in the Negev desert while parades and commemorations will also take place in the northern Galilee region.

Palestine will always be remembered; Palestinians will never give up their right in having their own land back for as long as life will go on!
