The popular committee in the Palestinian town of Sikhnin in Israel has called for a protest on Friday against the Israeli arrests of dozens of activists and figures in the National Democratic Bloc Party, which advocates for the rights of Palestinians in Israel.

The committee has condemned the way Israeli police have cracked on and arrested activists, stating, “This campaign aims to spread fear among Palestinians in Israel and their leaders and political representatives.”

The committee noted that these arrests are part of Israel’s plan to deligitimize the status of Palestinians in Israel, which is part of larger policy implemented by the right-wing government led by Benjamin Netanyahu.

The committee has refused all forms of Israeli intervention in political activism and called for unity among Palestinians in Israeli to counter these Israeli measures.

The protest will take place tomorrow at 5 pm  at the Martyrs Roundabout in the town of Sikhnin.

  1. Tajamoa/Balad members are leading the way to full and equal rights for all, which is inconsistent with any concept of a Jewish – or Moslem, or Christian, or Hindu – state. One must choose between a state favoring one ethnicity or religion and a state based on human rights, and the arrested people are courageously choosing the democratic option.
    I mean, let’s be aware of WHY Tajamoa is being singled out. It is because it is challenging the Jewish character of the state and adopting an ideology very close to that of One Democratic State. Evidently this is for Israel the most dangerous thing. Tajamoa is getting to the gist of the Zionist-Palestinian conflict.
