Arab Lands Day Demonstration in Karmiel Friday


Hundreds of Arabs from Galilee villages are expected to take part in a demonstration, Friday afternoon in the center of the predominantly-Jewish Galilee development city of Karmiel, to mark Lands Day, an Arab protest of government land expropriation. The demonstrators will state their claim that the city was built on Arab land and that the state must stop trying to remove residents of the Bedouin shanty neighborhood of Ramia in the center of the city.

Opposite the protest, which is expected to feature Palestinian Authority flags, dozens of Karmiel residents are expected to stage a counter demonstration.
