Ahram Online republishes images of Palestinian demonstration on 2015 Land Day, the annual commemoration of 1976 deadly protests against Israel's expropriation of Arab-owned land in the Galilee.

Palestinians mark the Land day on the 30th March in annual commemoration of Arab protests in 1976 inside the 1948 Green Line against Israel's expropriation of Arab land in the Galilee and the murder of several Arab Palestinian by Israel.

The general strike and marches organised on that date to protest the confiscation of 14,000 acres of Arab Palestinian land in the Galilee in north Palestine were set to take off from Galilee to the Negev.

Israeli attacks on protesters left more than 100 Arab-Palestinians injured and six dead.

The Judaization of Galilee is an official policy that was adopted in 1949 by the Israeli occupation government following the fall of Palestine in the 1948 war. It has aimed to increase Jewish population and communities in Galilee and to expand settlements.

The Palestinian centre of statistics issued a report marking the land day documenting that the Israel now occupies more than 85 % of historical Palestinian lands.

Fifteen percent of historic Palestine remain in the hands of Palestinians.

Palestinians today make up 48% of the current total population of historic Palestine, both in the occupied West Bank and Gaza or inside Israel proper.
