Six years ago began the struggle against the evacuation of families from their homes by organized settlers, which manage to do so by an unequal usage of laws about the property following the 1948 war.

The successful struggle stopped any further evacuations in Sheikh Jerrah but could not do so for the entire city. The settlers’ organization discover new and awful ways to take control of more and more property in neighborhoods like Silwan and the Muslim Quarter. In other places the city hall confiscates the lands that meant for development ; the separation wall was build inside the city to maintain an absolute  Jewish majority.

In Sheikh Jerrah itself the trails about the different houses are about to be opened soon.  In these days the tension is rising and the level of violence is again going up.

We will not allow the racist discrimination!

We won’t have privileges for Jews only!

We will not let the settlers expropriate steal and control!

On Friday, 4.9, at 16:00 we will meet in the protest square in Sheikh Jarrah, where activists from different neighborhoods of East Jerusalem will tell us about the situation there. 

Facebook event

Come to express solidarity with their struggles and put the limit to the racism, the occupation and continuing inequality in Jerusalem!
