FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Tomorrow, Friday at 10 a.m. Palestinian students of Al-Najah university of Nablus will demonstrate against the major checkpoint of Beit Furik (near Beit Furik village) which is affecting the inhabitants of several villages in the area. The action will address the occupation’s devastating effects on Palestinian education.
Hundreds of students, employers, teachers, patients, workers, and traders use the checkpoint each day to move between surrounding villages and the city of Nablus. They are often subjected to unnecessary humiliation tactics in addition to long waiting periods and frequent denial of access. In addition to this daily dehumanization, the checkpoint of Beit Furik closes around 6pm in the afternoon and forbids the students of Beit Furik village to go home after finishing their classes at Al-Najah.
