Jerusalem, Thu Dec. 16: Demonstration Against Demolitions
Two months ago, Jerusalem municipality destroyed the stall of Abu Ramouz family near Damascus Gate. Three generations of the family have operated the stall since 1965! Now they have to sell from the sidewalk, in the rain and cold, under permanent danger of fines and more persecution.

Many Jewish vendors in the west of the city suffer a similar fate, having been evicted from markets or forced to take up miniature spaces. Some live off social security, having no other source of income.

The mayor has broken his promise to resolve the problems of street vendors, and instead is serving the interests of millionaires.

Come join forces, Arabs and Jews, and demonstrate with us.j
