LAND DAY: March 30th Global Day of Action for BDS!
March 30th is the commemoration of Land Day and a global day of action for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions.

On 30 March 1976, thousands of people belonging to the Palestinian minority in Israel gathered to protest Israeli government plans to expropriate 60,000 dunams of Arab-owned land in the Galilee. In the resulting confrontations with Israeli police, six Palestinians were killed, hundreds wounded, and hundreds jailed. In the intervening years, those events have become consecrated in the Palestinian memory as Land Day.

Read the entire article What is it that Palestinians commemorate on Land Day? on the Electronic Intifada website.

As part of the global day of action, BACEIA and the Palestinian Youth Network have co-sponsored an educational event. Please join us for a screening of Have You Heard From Johannesburg and a talk and discussion with long time Palestinian American activist and Executive Director of the Arab Film Festival, Michel Shehadeh, about Israeli practices of apartheid within 1948 Palestine, the West Bank and Gaza; the legacy of Palestinian resistance and the significance to the solidarity movement for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions.
