Check out this video from Samaher Mrooj, Palestinian refugee in Jordan, calling for the March for Return and Liberation!
I am Samaher Mrooj, a refugee from the occupied city of Bisan. My message to the march of return and liberation in the shatat (exile/diaspora).
We are calling for the widest participation, to give no concessions of our rights and to uphold the alternative revolutionary path.
We reject all accords with the Zionists, particularly Camp David, Oslo and Wadi Araba. We reject normalization in all of its forms.
The liberation of Palestinian prisoners is a national, Arab and an international task.
We demand the breaking of the siege of our people in Gaza and the unity of all political trends of the Arab nation from the Gulf to the ocean in confronting colonization in all of its forms.
The right of return is a sacred right and it is the essence of the Palestinian cause. It is time for us, refugees, to take our rights and reject marginalization.
Watch all of our videos: from Khaled al-Batsh, Salman Abu Sitta, Sawsan al-Khuli, Father Manuel Musallam, Fr. Atallah Hanna, Dr. Ahmad Bahar, Najah Wakim, Mohammed Hashisho, Simaan Khoury, Olivia Zemor and many more at our website!
