segnalo che il proletariato Palestinese continua le sue mobilitazioni. Anche se molto spesso in Italia si da rilievo solo ad immagini di guerra
Compagne e compagni palestinesi sono altrettanto sul pezzo quanto i minatori polacchi ed indiani, per fare un esempio di questi giorni, che il nostro telematico ha (forse unico in Italia) riportato.
Palestinian citizens of Israel declare nationwide strike after Bedouin deaths
The strikers were protesting the Israeli killing of a Palestinian citizen
Occupied Jerusalem: Leaders of Israel’s 1.7 million Palestinian citizens declared a general strike throughout the country on Tuesday in protest at the recent deaths of two Bedouin men in confrontations with police.
Former member of parliament Taleb Al Sana, chairman of an umbrella organisation of Palestinian groups in the territory claimed by the Israeli regime, said that schools and businesses would close from the Galilee in the north to the Naqab (Negev) desert in the south.
“The general strike today is to send a strong message that the entire Arab community… strongly protests the murders of two citizens of the state of Israel whose only crime is being Arab,” Sana, who is himself Bedouin, told Israeli army radio.
Sami Al Jaar died of a gunshot wound last week during a police drug raid on the Negev Bedouin town of Rahat.
Police have opened an enquiry to determine if the shot was fired by officers or townspeople.
During Jaar’s funeral on Sunday, Sami Al Zayadna, 47, died of a heart attack during clashes in which police fired tear gas.
Following Zayadna’s burial on Monday, angry protesters — some of them masked — hurled stones at the Rahat police station, police said.
Police statements said that five suspected stone-throwers were detained and that more arrests were expected.
Rahat residents have been on strike since Sunday.
Thousands of Palestinian citizens attended Al Zayadna’s funeral on Monday. Clashes broke out again on Monday evening while a police helicopter circled overhead.
Rahat residents had been on strike since Sunday.
