This is 13-year-old Mujahid Abu Amsha, one of three teenagers killed yesterday by Israeli snipers during the Great Return March. One other Palestinian was also killed & 316 were injured. At least 40,000 Palestinians from Gaza marched to commemorate Land Day & the first anniversary of the Great Return Marches.
Forty-three years ago, on March 30, 1976, Israeli police shot & killed six Palestinians protesting the expropriation of thousands of acres of Palestinian land. Since then it has been commemorated as Land Day to protest & resist Israeli colonization. Palestinians chose Land Day 2018 to launch the Great Return March demanding Israel lift the embargo on Gaza & allow Palestinian refugees scattered in refugee camps all over the Middle East to return home.
Our fullest respect & solidarity with the Palestinian struggle against colonialism, apartheid, genocide.
