resisted the establishment of a racist regime in Palestine. And they
still do. It is only normal. If anyone comprehends the extent of the
injustice that has been committed against the Palestinian people, they

solidarity and support to a people that has resisted... and continues to
do so, for Justice in Palestine.

after being shot at close range sparking heightened protests. A report
on the funeral, protests and expectations for Nakba 2011"
