"Dismantle the Ghetto, Take Settlers Out of Hebron"


Pictured here: After Friday prayers, Palestinians gathered outside the Ibrahimi Mosque to promote the campaign "Dismantle the Ghetto, Take Settlers Out of Hebron", which calls for Right to Life and Freedom of Movement. This campaign commemorates the 23rd anniversary of the Ibrahimi Mosque Massacre and subsequent closure of Shuhada Street. An action will be taking place on February 24th and CPT Hebron has been asked by their partners to be present on the ground and the extended CPT community have been requested to stand in solidarity in their respective communities.

Children's Candlelight Vigil

 
Pictured here: Twenty-five to thirty children gathered by the concrete wall outside of the CPT apartment, which blocks access to Shudaha Street and is a constant reminder of the restrictions of movement placed on Palestinians by Israel. Organised by Youth Against Settlements, the children held a candlelight vigil in memory of those massacred in the Ibrahimi Mosque in 1994 and called for an end to the occupation. Watch our video here.

Another Generation Remembers


Pictured here: The children present at Sunday's candlelight vigil are another generation that must suffer the occupation. This year marks 50 years of the illegal Israeli military occupation of Gaza, the West Bank and East Jerusalem. These 50 years have seen hundreds of thousands of Palestinians evicted from their homes and the subjection of Palestinians to apartheid.
