‘Land Day’ is the anniversary of killing six Palestinian protesters by Israelis in 1976. The purpose of the protest, which will last six weeks until May 15 – which is the anniversary of Israel’s seizure of Palestinian territory in 1948 – is to raise international awareness. The Israelis erected a fence around the occupied territory and declared the fence area a military zone, which means they shoot-to-kill anyone attempting to breach the fence. Approaching right up to the fence and, in some cases, actually breaking through it, is what the unarmed Palestinian protestors are determined to do. In the ensuing confrontation, Israeli soldiers fired live rounds, rubber bullets, and tear-gas canisters into the crowds. Seventeen were killed and over a thousand wounded on the first day, A video clip shows soldiers detaining a 3-year old Palestinian boy in the West Bank. -GEG
