People in Amman, Jordan, including youth, women, workers and supporters of Samidoun, participated in a photo campaign to express their rejection of the Israeli annexation plan targeting the Jordan Valley and colonial settlements in the occupied West Bank of Palestine. The Netanyahu regime, with the backing of U.S. imperialism and the complicity of European and other colonial powers, declared its intention to openly annex major Palestinian agricultural land and resources, further forcing Palestinians from their homes and lands as part of the continuing Nakba.
Among other participants in the photo project is Kamal Khalil, artist and singer, the founder of Baladna band:
Protests and actions have been organized around the world and inside occupied Palestine on and around 1 July, the announced date for the annexation plan. In Amman, people carried signs declaring their rejection of the scheme and their commitment to Palestine in both Arabic and English, including:
“No to Annexation – No to Zionism!”
“Down with occupation…Down with the U.S.-Zionist plan (The U.S.-Zionist annexation project will not pass!)”
“The Arab popular response to the Zionist annexation plan is: Scrap Camp David, Wadi Araba and Oslo agreements!”
“Palestine from the river to the sea – your colonialist projects will not pass!”
“(Zionist annexation plan will not pass) All of Palestine and the revolution continues”
“Our people are stronger than the schemes – racist colonialist projects will not pass”
Over 100 cities around the world are holding protests and actions in the coming days, organized by many different Palestinian community and Palestine solidarity organizations.
