May 24 - protest the `Jerusalem Day` march of hate
This year, yet again, the extreme right-wing will celebrate the day in which
Jerusalem was `unified` through a march of flags along the streets of the
Muslim Quarter in the Old City. Business owners will be required to close
their shops and Palestinian residents will be asked to shut themselves up in
their homes - while Lahava thugs march freely through the streets shouting
`Muhammad is dead,` under the cover of the march.

And this year, too, the Jerusalem Municipality and the Ministry of Culture
have invested millions of shekels in the march. Growing poverty and piles of
garbage filling the streets are of no interest to them, but transferring 25
million NIS to the march that could have gone to education, housing, and
transportation? They have no problem with that.

As madness rages through the streets, hallways of the municipality, and
government offices, we speak a simple truth: Jerusalem is not a united city
and will not be liberated until all its residents are free. On Jerusalem Day
we will demonstrate on the Green Line, for freedom, justice, and equality
for all the city`s residents - offering a sane alternative to extreme right-
wing groups.

Wednesday, May 24, 18:00, `IDF Square`. Join us
