Come join us this Christmas season as we pray and act for peace with justice in Jerusalem.
(AL WALAJA, Occupied Palestine) - Palestinians throughout historic Palestine and in exile still believe in and work for peace based upon justice and trust that with the help of the international community we will achieve our peace and freedom and restore the values and principles that we share as human beings.
We invite you. We call upon you. Join us and be the change you want to see in this world.
1) A critical peace march in Al-Walaja Noon Friday, 5 November 2010. The local committee invites all activists to this critical event coming only 3 days before a key Israeli supreme court session that will rule about the wall that is being built to strangulate the village. Attending thr march on Friday will help in drawing media attention to the now critical situation in this village. The local committee also asks people to attend the court on Monday starting at 9 AM. This is a critical period and teh local committee calls on making thsi peaceful march the largest ever to send a message: no to ethnic cleansing, no to separating villagers from their land.

Come join us this Christmas season as we pray and act for peace with justice in Jerusalem. We believe in nonviolence as a way of life and an absolute powerful means of resistance. We believe in International Law and Human Rights. We believe that every single one of us is a change maker, and nobody has the right to say I can't do anything.
