At the Tala’at protest today in Ramallah, occupied Palestine, Janna Jihad, the Palestinian youth activist and journalist from the village of Nabi Saleh – urged people to participate in the actions on 1 July to confront Israeli annexation plans and ongoing colonization of Palestine.
Janna is known for chronicling the struggle of her village against Israel’s occupation and confiscation of Palestinian land and resources, reaching a global audience through social media. A cousin of Ahed Tamimi, Janna began reporting on the occupation when she was seven years old after two of her family members were murdered by Israel. She is one of the youngest recognized journalists in the world.
Watch Janna’s video:
She says: “Greetings, We are now with Tala’at march in Ramallah, because we want to oppose the actions committed by the Israeli occupation against the Palestinian people.
I would like to invite you to the march on 1 July organized by the Samidoun Network, to express our rejection to annexation plans against the Palestinian land of the Jordan Valley.”
Confronting Israel’s annexation plans – fully backed by U.S. imperialism and inspired by Zionist racism – also comes as part of the global fightback against racism, colonialism and imperialism. Israel’s crimes are backed by $3.8 million in military aid from the U.S. each year as well as unlimited diplomatic, political and “security” support from Canada, the European Union, Britain, Australia and other imperialist powers.
Join us on 1 July to stand with the Palestinian people against Israeli annexation and for justice, return and liberation in Palestine. If you are organizing an event, a contingent or an action of any kind, please let us know – email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or message us on Facebook to ensure we publicize it!
