LAND DAY DEMO: STOP SHAMIR PLAN (WAS PRAWER PLAN)
Land Day Demonstration: Stop the Negev Bedouin Clearances. The demo is a commemoration of Land Day with special focus on the Negev Bedouin.
Although the Prawer Bill of 2013 has been shelved, the essence of Prawer is forging ahead on the ground with an increasing number of home demolitions (over 1,000 a year). The new Minister who has taken over from Benny Begin – Yair Shamir (son of Yitzhak Shamir) – appears to be preparing a fresh version of policy and law which could be unveiled as early as May when the new Knesset session begins. The Prawer Plan is now the Shamir Plan.
Please bring home-made placards if possible.
