Scores suffocated from tear gas today during the weekly demonstration in Nabi Saleh. The march began at Martyrs' Square and proceeded towards the main entrance to the village, whose iron gates were closed. Palestinian and foreign protesters were led by children carrying signs with slogans against the occupation and demanding national rights. When protesters were 100 meters from the gate, clashes ensued, and the Israeli soldiers fired tear gas canisters and rubber bullets at protesters. Demonstrators then marched towards the expropriated water spring and lands, as women and girls led the march to shield the youth from the snipers. The popular resistance movement is calling to form a united leadership and program of struggle on the basis of popular resistance in order to resist policies of uprooting, displacement and settlements, and for the international community to implement resolutions against the occupation.

Eight female activists, including single mothers living in public housing, occupied the main offices of Amidar in Tel Aviv today. Amidar, founded as a public housing corporation, is currently in the process of privatisation, as many of its assets are being sold in the market, living families eligible for public housing on the brink of homelessness. The activists came to Amidar offices to remind employees of the plight of Mazal Arami and her six children, about to lose their home, and many others in similar situation.

Finally, the women were told Arami would speak to an executive who guarantees a solution for her family, as long as the other activists leave the premises. The executive promised Arami he would be in touch with her the following day.
