What: Peace March across five Palestinian communities in the South Hebron Hills.
Where: Villages of At-Tuwani, Al Mufaqarah, Maghayir Al Abeed, Isfey and Tuba.
When: Saturday, 22nd of September. The march will start from At-Tuwani at 10 am and will end in Tuba village at around 4 pm.
Why: The purpose of the march is to reinforce the communities’ right to live and to resist in a nonviolent way under Israeli occupation and settler’s violence. Walking for peace means acting for peace. And acting for peace means acting against injustice.
The event is organized by the Popular Resistance Committee of South Hebron Hills and is inspired by the Italian Perugia-Assisi Peace March. The march will pass through lands that are particularly targeted by settler’s attacks (against properties and people) and will stop in four villages inside the Firing Zone 918. From November 1, seven Palestinian villages in this area will be under risk of evacuation because the territory is needed for Israel Defense Forces training exercises.
The conclusion of the event will take place in Tuba village, where there will be speeches of Palestinian representatives, Israeli peace activists and international volunteers; there will be also musical entertainment and a show of Palestinian traditional dance, dabke.
It will be possible to sleep in Tuba village. Everyone who wants to do it should bring his sleeping bag.
Please confirm your participation at the event.
“Despite the military aggressive rules, despite the settler’s violence, despite the human rights violations, despite the demolitions of the Palestinian homes, we pray for peace, we act for peace, we will march for peace.” Said the coordinator of the South Hebron Hills Popular Resistance Committee.
