Aqsa under Attack. Downtown Rally and March

As we move further into the 50th year of Israel's Occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem, Palestinians organized a week of nonviolent mass mobilization in Jerusalem to push back against moves by the Israeli government to strengthen its hold over Al Aqsa Mosque. In response, Israeli Occupation Forces cracked down with tear gas, dogs, and bullets. Israel is now seeking to install "smart" cameras with facial recognition technology throughout the compound that are justifiably being interpreted as an extension of the mass surveillance Palestinians already face throughout every aspect of their lives.

Check out this more comprehensive summary of events from Ir Amim and this one from American Muslims for Palestine, and join us on Friday at the Coalition for Justice in Palestine's march and rally on Friday!
