Activists Plan Land Day Events

International activists are making the final preparations for the Global March to Jerusalem to commemorate the Palestinian Land Day on March 30.

Pro-Palestinian activists plan to hold a demonstration near the southern Lebanese border on Friday.

Similar gatherings have been scheduled to be held in Egypt, Jordan, and Syria.

On March 24, an international Asian convoy of pro-Palestine activists arrived in Syria, en route to Jerusalem.

The Global March to Jerusalem is an international peaceful movement, which also condemns the Israeli occupation of the holy Palestinian city.

March 30 is commemorated because of a deadly incident on that day in 1976 in which Israeli troops killed six Palestinians during a protest against the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian lands.

Reports say Israel has already warned Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and the Palestinian Authority against giving permission for the pro-Palestine demonstrations.
