Solidarity: Continuing the struggle to stop the Mount Scopus national park
Friday, March 23rd, at 11:45 –
Continuing the struggle to stop the Mount Scopus national park

A week after the launch of Solidarity`s campaign against the plan of the new national park in east Jerusalem, we made an achievement in the struggle. Hundreds of people sent faxes and e-mails to the Nature and Parks Authority, and results soon followed:

The Jerusalem municipality has announced the allocation of additional lands for the development of Issawiya and A-Tour, at the expense of the intended national park.

In the upcoming months the struggle to determine the size of land allocated to the neighborhoods will continue, and will determine the fate of thousands of families living in the area.

Continuing the struggle at this time is crucial.

So what can you do?

1. Come to the weekly protest vigil in Issawiya, this coming Friday, March 23, at 11:45 AM. We will meet at the Eastern lookout of Mount Scopus, at 11:45 AM.
