The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil,
but because of the people who don't do anything about it

Solidarity with Lod
Protest Vigil the house demolitions
Tuesday, January 11th, 6:00 PM
Meeting point at the protest tent,
Helen Keler St. and Hamasger St.
The Israel Land Administration demolished nearly a month ago, in a rainy and story day, seven houses belonging to the Abu Eid family in Lod. The demolition was carried out with brutality and was accompanied with lies and deceptions. One day before the demolition took place the familyís attorney was told it was to be postponed by six months, and the family was promised an alternative land.
The family members still live in the street. The government recently allocated a 40 million NIS budget for house demolitions in Lod, as part as a ďrehabilitation planĒ. A neigbourhood for army and police personal and others projects will be built instead of the homes to be demolished.This plan is a clear statement that the government has no intention to solve the problems of poverty, distress and crime in Lod. Just like in Silwan, Dahamash, El-Arakib and Taybhe this plan is meant solely to make life for the Palestinians harder, and will result solely in further distress and hate.
