Press Release

To mark Palestinian `Land Day,` over 300 people demonstrated in the West Bank village of Budrus. They planted trees along the route of the Separation Barrier but were dispersed by Israeli military who shot tear gas and rubber bullets at the crowd. Three people were injured by rubber bullets.

Land Day, March 30, is an annual day of commemoration for Palestinians of events in 1976. In response to the Israeli government`s announcement of a plan to expropriate thousands of dunams of land for security and settlement purposes, a general strike and marches were organized in Arab towns from the Galilee to the Negev. In the ensuing confrontations with the Israeli army and police, six Arab citizens were killed, about one hundred were wounded, and hundreds of others arrested.
