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.
