FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Villagers in Beit Sira will continue to protest against the annexation of their land this Friday, despite threats of collective punishment by the Israeli Civil Administration.
The Administration has threatened to withdraw all work permits from the village if the protests continue. Many of the villagers work in Israel, and need the work permits in order to remain legal and travel to and from work.
The villagers will be joined by Israeli and international activists, who will demonstrate against the annexation barrier that illegally seizes land for the Makabim settlement.
The demonstration starts after midday prayers (around noon) and departs from the village mosque.
