Land Day 2010On the evening of Tuesday 30th March the IPSC in Dublin will commemorate Palestinian Land Day by holding a solidarity picket outside the GPO on O'Connell Street from 5 - 7pm. This year we will be marking the continued Palestinian resistance to Israel's ongoing ethnic cleansing and land theft operations in Palestine. We ask you to join us for a couple of hours to stand in solidarity with the residents of Sheikh Jarrah, Bil'in, Nil'in, Neve Tirtze, Iraq Bourin, ‘Awarta (the latter two villages saw the murder of 4 Palestinians by the Israeli army over the weekend) and the many other towns and villages resisting colonisation by the Israeli State.

About Land Day:

Land Day, March 30th, is an annual day of commemoration for Palestinians for the events of that date in 1976 when, in response to the Israeli government's announcement of a plan to expropriate thousands of dunams of land for "security and settlement purposes", a general strike and marches were organised in Palestinian towns in Israel from the Galilee to the Negev. In the ensuing confrontations with the Israeli army and police, six Palestinian citizens of Israel were killed, about one hundred were wounded, and hundreds of others arrested. It is commemorated every year by Palestinians and their supporters around the world.
