On Monday 30 March SFP activists joined the village of Huwwara, just south of Nablus city, to march in commemoration of Land Day. As activists marched from the local School to the main street, frequented by illegal settlers and Israeli solders, dozens of soldiers opened fired on the peaceful demonstrators.
Activists were sprayed in the face with pepper spray as they attempted to proceed down the road, and choked by the volleys of tear gas fired at them by the soldiers. Several Palestinian journalists were also assaulted by the soldiers as they attempted to document the march.
Land Day is marked every year around the world by Palestinians and international supporters. It commemorates the events which took place on 30 March 1976. It marked the first act of mass resistance by the Palestinians inside Apartheid Israel after years of brutal military rule. The Palestinians inside historical Palestine demonstrated against the Zionist policy of internal colonialisation, a systematic process that had reduced Palestinian land ownership from around 94 per cent of all territory in pre-1948 Palestine to less than three per cent in what is now considered to be Israel. The demonstrations were accompanied by a mass general strike of Palestinian workers and brutal repression from the Zionist forces, with many Palestinians killed and injured at the hands of Apartheid Israel. Policies that continue to this day.
SFP marched with the villagers of Huwwara and called for people around the world to join the struggle for freedom by joining the call for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Apartheid Israel. SFP will continue to support villages across Palestine to remain steadfast on the land.
