10th May 2016 | Open The Zone campaign | Hebron, occupied Palestine
Take action to end the closed military zone in Hebron and join our twitter storm and thunderclap campaign!
Take a stand against the forced closure of Shuhada Street and the neighbourhood of Tel Rumeida in Hebron. The area has been a ‘closed military zone’ since 1st November 2015 and Palestinians are only allowed to reach their own homes if they have been registered with a number by the Israeli forces.
Join our twitter storm on 16th of May 2016 from 7pm to 9pm GMT+2 (local Palestinian time) with the hashtag #OpenTheZone to show your support for the campaign to end these inhumane restrictions on Palestinians and to show the world that Palestinians are people – not numbers! You can use these tweets for the twitter storm (also at the end of the page).
Join our thunderclap campaign on 16th of May 2016 at 7pm GMT+2 (local Palestinian time) by clicking on the ‘support button’ on the Thunderclap and signing up.
Your support is needed to end this crime of collective punishment! “The closed miitary zone is a crime against humanity – against civilians, whose fault is that they were born as Palestinians” – Shuhada Street resident.
