Jaffa residents at risk of eviction and demolition again
from Act Left 24 April 2007
A wave of eviction and demolition orders has been issued in Jaffa lately. The Israel Land administration and the Amidar company have issued about 500 such orders, mostly in the Ajami and Jabaliya neighborhoods. Thousands of people stand to become homeless in order to benefit wealthy investors. It also seems as if this move is motivated by a desire to replace the neighborhood’s Palestinian population with wealthy people interested in beach front property.
The popular committee to defend the land and the right to residency is calling for a joint demonstration against the eviction and expulsion on Friday April 27th at 13:30. The demonstration will leave from the south end of Beit Pelet street at Kidron park which is in front of reef beach (Givaat Ha’aliya beach) behind Abu Naser restaurant. See the map HERE
