Stop the Ethnic Cleansing in the Naqab

Often referred to as the “Nakba in al-Naqab”, the Prawer-Begin Plan was adopted by the Knesset on June 24 2013, paving the way for the mass expulsion of Palestinian Bedouin communities from their lands in the Naqab (Negev) desert. Should it be fully implemented, the plan would result in the destruction of the confiscation of 800,000 dunums of land, the destruction of 35 unrecognized villages, and the expulsion of an estimated 70,000 Bedouins in what many are calling the single-largest act of displacement of Palestinian citizens of Israel since 1948.

On July 15th, thousands of Palestinians took to the streets from Haifa to Hebron to protest the implementation of the Prawer Plan. Despite mass arrests and considerable repression at the hands of the Israeli Occupation Forces, the struggle against displacement and dispossession continues. On August 2nd, join Tadamon at the Palestinian and Jewish Unity picket in front of Indigo Bookstore as part of a global day of action to demand an end to the Prawer Plan and demonstrate solidarity with Palestinian Bedouin communities in the Naqab.
