Freedom of Movement Day


Freedom of Movement Day

It's hard to watch your fathers, brothers and uncles humiliated every day by the Israeli Military at checkpoints. Just ask one little girl, who, along with 10- 15 other children and several ISM internationals, plans to demonstrate at the Beit Fareek checkpoint, Thursday, July 24 at 16:00. - I hate that my daddy is detained for so long, and we don't know if he's all right. And my mom worries all the time.-

The children will carry banners that say "Free Free Palestine" and "Freedom of Movement Now" and "Free Our Fathers and Brothers". They will stand at the checkpoint in testimony to the treatment their male relatives have received since the it was erected three years ago.

To be a free nation, Palestinians must be able to move freely from neighbor to neighbor, town to town, field to field. On July 24th, the children will celebrate their determination to be free by proudly carrying their banners to the checkpoint, the symbol of their occupation.
