Israel surrounded again: New calls for a Friday march to the borders

Palestinian Facebook groups call for a new march on Friday from Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, Gaza and the West Bank to Israeli borders to demand the right for refugees to return

Saleh Naami , Wednesday 18 May 2011

Palestinian activists created a Facebook page calling for a march Friday from Syria, Egypt, Lebanon and Gaza towards the Israeli border in tribute to the “martyrs of the Nakba anniversary.”

The Youth Committee for the third Palestinian Intifada, as the activist group calls themselves, said the rallies will depart after Friday prayers from Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, the Gaza Strip, West Bank and the lands occupied in 1948.

In another separate event, another Gazan youth group called on Facebook to protest in a Friday Day of Anger at the Al-Auda (the return) Square at the Bayt Hanun crossing, north of the Gaza Strip.

They will rendezvous at 11am to hear the Friday sermon, perform the Friday prayers and part to the borders to demand the return of Palestinian refugees to their homes.

The organisers of the event clarified that the rally will be absolutely peaceful, with the only objective being to raise Palestinian flags and march with banners demanding the right to return. The crowds do not represent any particular institution, they assert, simply the anger of the Palestinian people.
