A Joint March of Palestinians and Israelis:

No to Walls and Checkpoints
Yes to Negotiation-
No to Unilateral “Convergence”

A-Ram, Jerusalem, Saturday, May 13th, 11 am

In contrast to the Israeli government’s assertion that “there is no partner”, and its program for unilateral annexation, the residents of A-Ram continue their joint activities with Israelis, against the occupation and for a peace that is just for both peoples. This march is the first in a series of actions by a coalition of Israelis and Palestinians together with the residents of A-Ram.

The Wall, which bisects the main street of A-Ram, has critically damaged the life of the residents. It has divided families, stopped workers from reaching their workplace and cut off teachers and students from their schools; in fact, three schools have already been forced to close.

The Wall has turned a thriving urban center into a jail.

The march, with the participation of schoolchildren, teachers, neighborhood residents and supporters will start at the center of A-Ram in the direction of the A-Ram checkpoint
