"The Steering Committee of International Jewish Voices Canada has voted to endorse the Global March to Jerusalem, an international non-violent event taking place in Jerusalem on March 30.

THe Global March will unite Palestinians, Arabs, Muslims, Christians and Jews in an effort to end the Israeli government's disregard for international law in its continuing occupation of Jerusalem and other regions of Palestine.

Global March To Jerusalem North America

http://www.gmj-na.org/home.html

"Join thousands of Palestinians and supporters from all over the world who will be marching on March 30, 2012 to oppose Israeli apartheid and ethnic cleansing, to demand access to Jerusalem for all people, and to uphold Palestinian rights under international law, including refugees right  of return."

One wonders how the local marches to Israeli consulates and embassies are going to come off here in Canada, since there appears to be practically no media or advance publicity that I have seen. One wonders why, since the Canadian Peace Alliance is listed so prominently as an 'endorser', there is no mention of it anywhere on the cpa website?  If someone else wonders why this is, they can email their questions to the Canadian Peace Alliance at    Given that this is supposed to be an international effort, the Canadian response appears, as is frequntly the case in such things,  to be distinctly underwhelming.

They must have at least some clue as to what the majority of the world's citizens think of zionism, just as Harper might have an inkling of what most Canadians would consider fair in the matter.  But just as pipeline protesters and blockade runners are terrorists, and now marchers the world over are Hamas inspired and are therefore terrorists by association before they even take one step forward, no minds will be changed by any of this.  This power can't be bargained with or petitioned to.  It must be left to rot in place and thus deposed and smothered under it's own dead weight, left to rot without a shred of investment by anyone into its sense of self-importance, including it's hangers on and wannabe replicas.

IDF Gears Up For Global March To Jerusalem

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4207629,00.html

"The IDF is gearing up to a possible storming of Israeli borders as part of the Global March to Jerusalem set for Friday, March 30. Israel has issued a clear warning to Arab states and the Palestinian Authority against allowing the march. Over the weekend, the London-based-al-Sharq-al-Awsat newspaper reported that Israel sent a warning to the governments of Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, Hamas in Gaza and the Palestinian Authority following the Nakba and Naksa day events. Israel demanded that they not allow marches on its borders which could escalate the situation in the region.

Meanwhile, Israel's Higher Arab Monitoring Committee is planning on holding the annual Land Day events this weekend. Palestinian flags will be the only flag to be flown and it will be flown at all events. They have decided that this year's events which will take place on Friday will be commemorated under the heading 'Save The Lands and Prevent Judaization of Jerusalem.' Thousands are said to take part in the main parade in Dir Hana in the lower Galilee.

Monitoring Committee chairman Muhammad Zidan told Ynet that 'the subject of lands has been very sensitive and important and we must continue in our struggle against land expropriation in the sector. 'Land Day reminds us of the martyrs who have fallen and deserve to be remembered,' Zidar added: 'We have demanded that the police not enter Arab towns,."

The Canadian Peace Alliance, listed as an 'endorser' of the Global March to Jerusalem, has not thought it necessary to make any mention of GMJ on their website. Nor is any mention made there of Canadian solidarity actions. No wonder the national peace and anti-war movement is in such a moribund condition. After much searching elsewhere...

Viva Viva Al Quds! Viva Viva Palestina!

The Boycott Israeli Aprtheid Campaign (Vancouver) considered organizing an action in solidarity with the Global March to Jerusalem, but we ultimately decided against it, not because we don't think it's important -- it is -- but because we were involved in a lot of other Palestine work in March, and could not find time to meet and organize it.

We were the main organizing force behind the Gaza Children's Art Show -- though some other groups were also involved -- and we also organized two events in conjunction with Israeli Apartheid week. We usually meet every two weeks, but went almost a month between meetings -- first because folks didn't want to meet the week that folks were puting in lots of volunteer hours on the Gaza art show, then because we had difficulty finding a meeting date that enough of us could meet (we have about a dozen or so members who attend meetings). We didn't get to meet until this Wednesday, and we couldn't organize anything in two days.

The Canadian Peace Alliance hasn't really ever done work on Palestine as a national organization afaik. I also believe that Vancouver's Stopwar Coalition, with which I'm also an active member, is the only peace/anti-war group that meets regularly -- we have about ten active members and usually get half to three quarters out to meetings.

Stopwar fully supports the Palestinian struggle, but we don't see it as our job to be a coordinating group for Palestine solidarity in Vancouver. We're more concerned with the ongoing Canadian presence in Afghanistan, the "Peace and Prosperity, Not War and Austerity" campaign of the Canadian Peace Alliance -- which includes opposing the Canadian governments spending on F-35s and warships ect., and the threats of war against Iran.

Protester dies as Palestinians mark Land Day

Quote:

Israeli troops have shot dead a Palestinian man in northern Gaza after a day of protest which saw thousands of people rallying to mark Land Day, a medical spokesman said.

Israeli security forces also fired rubber coated bullets, tear gas and stun grenades to break up groups of Palestinian demonstrators in the occupied West Bank on Friday.

At least 121 people were injured in clashes at the Qalandiya checkpoint on the outskirts of Jerusalem, mostly from tear gas inhalation, medical sources told Al Jazeera.

Marwan Barghouti Placed In Solitary Confinement in Israeli Jail After Call for Popular Uprising

http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-defense/marwan-barghouti-placed-in...

"Imprisoned Fatah leader Marwan Barghouti who last week called on Palestinians to commence a popular uprising against Israel, has been placed in solitary confinement in Hadarim prison, and denied his rights to see visitors. Barghouti, who also called on Palestinians to put an immediate stop to negotiations with Israel, made the remarks before Land Day last Friday, when thousands of Palestinians protested to mark the death of six Israeli Arabs in 1976,

The imprisoned Fatah commander, who is serving five life sentences, sent the missive stating that 'The Palestinian Authority must stop all coordination with Israel - economic and security - and work toward Palestinian reconciliation,' an unusual turn for the Fatah leader, who called for a complete halt in peace negotiations with Israel..."
