The call to action for the protests says, “Injustice, humiliation and forced displacement are a recurring theme in Palestine’s history. This is lesson that we as a group of youth take to the heart. We will oppose, resist and work against the continuous assault that our communities, across Palestine face.

Opposing the Prawer Plan is to oppose ethnic cleansing, displacement and confinement in the 21st century. “
