Women Of Ar-Ram Take To The Streets

Women Of Ar-Ram Take To The Streets

First women-only demonstration in Ar-Ram next Wednesday

[Ar-Ram, North Jerusalem] On Wednesday, June 16, 2004, women of Ar- Ram will hold their first women-only demonstration against the wall and against the Israeli military occupation. They will be joined at 2pm at the Martyrs' Square in Ar-Ram by Israeli and international activists in their protest against the construction of the Wall throughout their town.

The planned route of the Wall runs through the main road of the town, from Ar-Ram checkpoint to Qalandiya checkpoint cutting off thousands of residents from Jerusalem. Once the Wall is completed, the Israeli military will have total control over the access of Ar- Ram residents to health and school services, turning the whole area into an enclave.

The residents of Ar-Ram have vowed to continue their protests until the construction of the wall is stopped.

DATE: Friday, June 16, 2004 TIME: 2pm PLACE: Martyrs' Square Ar-Ram
