On the occasion of Land Day, SFP activists joined the Popular Committee in the village of Izbat at Tabib, Qalqliya district, as they remain steadfast on their land. The village organized a festival, attended Rami Hamdullah, the Prime Minister, to discuss Land Day and the ongoing struggle for Palestinian rights.
Izbat at Tabib has had demolition orders for the majority of the villages homes, including the school and medical clinic. Since then the village has put up brave resistance, refusing to be ethnically cleansed from their land. They established a tent in the centre of the village, a symbol of their resistance and regularly organise actions against the harassment and intimidation if the Army.
The action was to mark Land Day, a day commemorated every year on 30 March by Palestinians. Land Day marks the events in 1976 when Apartheid Israel confiscated over 60,000 dunums of Palestinians land in the Galilee area of Palestine. This sparked widespread popular resistance to the Occupation and a general strike that lasted 6 months. Many Palestinians were killed and attacked in the brutal crackdown by Apartheid Israel.
But as then, Palestinians today remain steadfast. SFP and activists affirmed their rights to take back their land, raped and pillaged by Apartheid Israel. SFP will continue its activities to reclaim the land, and support villages in their resistance. We kindly ask for any donations you may be able to make to help us in our activities.
