We are very excited to announce the upcoming 4th annual Open Shuhada Street Campaign from 22-25 February 2013
From atop the hill where the tiny village of al-Mufaqarah rests, in the southernmost end of the West Bank, the desert appears immense as the eye wanders uninterrupted over its rolling hills. Uninterrupted that is, until it hits the four illegal Israeli settlements, sticking out like a sore thumb. Simple folk live here, people made to endure ubiquitous harassment by extremist settlers and life under the constant threat of displacement by the Israeli army. Help us show that solidarity is more than a mere word.
Struggle to End Israel’s Oppression and International Complicity Continues

Recent events have once more proven the potency of civil resistance, and its ability to bring about change and end injustice. From the Arab Spring to the recent demonstrations commemorating the Nakba, ordinary people are affecting change. While Abdallah Abu Rahmah is finally out of Israeli prisons, a new wave of repression is underway in the West Bank, and more protest leaders have been rounded up as Israel once more is set to suppress civil resistance to the Occupation. we need your help to stand by them.
