Barcelona demonstration marks Palestinian Land Day

At the call of Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network and the Masar Badil, the Palestinian Alternative Revolutionary Path Movement, approximately 60 people gathered on Thursday, 30 March  in Barcelona, Catalonia, on the occasion of Palestinian Land Day. This demonstration was an opportunity to affirm the commitment of social movements in the city to the liberation of Palestine, its land and people, especially following the official suspension of “twinning” and cooperation between Barcelona and Tel Aviv.

The slogans of the day were support for the Palestinian resistance, freedom for Palestinian prisoners, the right to return and the liberation of Palestine from the river to the sea. Participating organizations included Al Yudur Palestinian Youth Mobilization and Alkarama Palestinian Women’s Movement, and many members of the Palestinian diaspora and supporters of Palestine joined the demonstration.

Speakers highlighted many ongoing campaigns, including the call to free Georges Abdallah, the Lebanese Arab struggler for Palestine jailed in France for nearly 39 years, and the International Campaign to Liberate the Remains of Palestinian Martyrs.
