Palestine Land Day

Sat 28 Mar 2020, 12-1pm, Town Hall, Sheffield S1 2HH

THIS EVENT IS POSTPONED, but see Digital Day of Action for Palestine, below

A rally to mark the time in 1976 when Israeli police shot and killed six Palestinian citizens of Israel as they were protesting the Israeli government’s expropriation of thousands of acres of Palestinian land. Since then, March 30th is commemorated as Land Day, an important event in the Palestinian collective narrative.

The Great March of Return was launched in Gaza on March 30th 2018, as a powerful reminder to the world that Palestinian resistance to Israeli colonisation and sumud (steadfastness) will continue until the refugees’ right of return is recognized.

Digital Day of Action for Palestine!

Sat 28 Mar 2020, online

While all healthcare systems are struggling to manage this crisis, the people in Gaza are especially vulnerable. Thirteen years of Israel’s illegal siege, repeated bombings, and the deliberate maiming of protesters in the Great March of Return have stretched the fragile healthcare system to breaking point.

Gaza is one of the most densely populated areas in the world, yet there are only 2,800 hospital beds and 60 working ventilators for the roughly 2 million people living there. Restrictions imposed by Israel’s illegal blockade mean the infrastructure simply isn’t there to deal with this pandemic. Thousands will unnecessarily die unless urgent action is taken now. In this day of action, join Palestine Solidarity Campaign in their online campaign to get the blockade lifted, via social media and letters.
