Candlelight procession from Bethlehem to Jerusalem Tomorrow, Tuesday December 25th – Christmas Day, over 100 foreign civilians, from Britain, Denmark, France, Germany, Spain and the United States will march with Palestinians in the traditional Christmas Day procession from Shepard’s Field in Beit Sahour to Bethlehem. A candlelight procession will then be carried from the burnt Paradise Hotel in Bethlehem to Jerusalem.
Palestinians have been long denied access to Jerusalem and even from traveling to and from their own cities, towns and villages freely, without having to go through Israeli military checkpoints. In this holiday procession, Palestinians and internationals will walk hand in hand from Bethlehem to Jerusalem carrying a message of peace, justice and equality for all.
Meeting point will be 4:00pm at Shepherd’s Field in Beit Sahour. Meeting at Paradise Hotel at approximately 5:30pm.
