IMPORTANT: This action will take place on SATURDAY and NOT on Friday as was incorrectly mentioned in a previous version of this press release.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
At 9 am this Saturday villagers from Beit Omar in the Hebron region of the West Bank, joined by Israeli and international supporters, will hold a non-violent demonstration against the “security” road that surrounds the illegal Israeli settlement of Karmi Zur.
Although the settlement is built on agricultural land that belongs to the village, the villagers are prevented from crossing the military road by the occupying Israeli army. Since 1984, 200 dunams of the village’s land has been occupied by the settlement, which continues growing to this day.
The demonstrators will attempt to non-violently cross the road and access the village land. They will bring tractors and other equipment and attempt to work their land.
