On Friday the Freedom Ride spent the day at Nabi Saleh where villagers hold a weekly protest against the theft of their land.
Sybil sent this report:
“Today we joined the weekly demonstration against the theft of Palestinian land and the settlement that overlooks Nabi Saleh. We marched down the hill and were met by a jeep load of occupation forces, armed to the teeth. They fired dozens of tear gas canisters at us. Some of us managed to walk around the stolen fields.”
“We were very pleased to be joined by several Israeli activists, who come every week.
“We also heard extraordinary stories from the Popular Resistance Committee, many of whose activists are women, including the world’s youngest journalist – Jenna Jihad (9). She has 23,000 followers on Facebook…Join them!”
The activists were then treated to a fantastic spread by the residents of Nabi Saleh where they shared stories and made new friends.
