PA Pushes Turnout at Afternoon Rallies


The Palestinian Authority is encouraging high turnout at rallies planned in PA cities Wednesday afternoon in hopes of gaining further international support for its bid for UN recognition as a state. PA media has been issuing calls to the public to join in.

In addition, the PA has given its employees the day off, and universities and schools have canceled classes, in order to ensure maximum turnout. Transportation companies are providing free rides from small towns to the demonstrations.
