Jerusalem Marathon - the symbol of occupation and oppression

Today, Friday, the 17th of March, the Jerusalem Marathon will be held, thus
marking 50 years to the “unification” of the city.
The marathon is one of the events of which the mayor of Jerusalem is
particularly proud, using it as an opportunity to portray Jerusalem as a
normal, cosmopolitan city, inviting tourists and locals to run through
“unified Jerusalem”. This year, as in previous years, the marathon’s route
extends beyond the 1967 seam line and disrupts the lives of many
Palestinians, who are not party to the celebrations.
This is the sixth year that a Palestinian initiative to protest against the
marathon is taking place. This protest is meant to remind the city`s
residents and other participants that Jerusalem is not a united city in
which sports and cultural activities are neutral, but rather a city of which
part is under occupation.
You are invited to stand with us and clarify to the runners that the real
finish line we should be running towards is the end of the occupation.

We will meet on Friday, 17.3.17, at 8:30 AM on the Palestinian side of
HaNeviim/ no 1 intersection (the corner of Antara Ben Shadad and Heyl
Ha’Handasa street, before Neomi Kiss street).

The hands that build walls can also tear them down.
Freedom for one- freedom for all.


سيعقد يوم الجمعة المقبل ماراثون القدس، وذلك تحت عنوان الذكرى الخمسين ل`توحيد` المدينة.

ان رئيس البلدية يفتخر بماراثون القدس لانه يتيح له الفرصة لاظهار القدس كمدينة عادية وكوسموبوليتية ودعوة السواح
والسكان الى العدو في `القدس الموحدة`. وستمر مسيرة الماراثون هذه السنة كما يحدث في كل سنة على خط التماس
معرقلة بذلك حياة الكثير من الفلسطينيين، الذين بالطبع لا يشتركون في السباق.

ويقوم الفلسطينيون للسنة السادسة على التوالي بمبادرة احتجاجية ضد الماراثون بهدف تذكير السكان والمشاركين ان
القدس ليست بمدينة موحدة تعتبر الفعاليات الرياضية والثقافية فيها أمر طبيعي حيادي بل مدينة ذات جزء محتل.

ندعوكم/ن الى الوقوف معنا لنبين لكل العداؤون والعداءات ان الخط الوحيد الذي يجب علينا أن نركض صوبه هو خط
نهاية الاحتلال.

سنلتقي يوم الجمعة 17.3 في تمام الساعة 8:30 صباحا في مصرارة على مفترق شارع الأنبياء وطريق رقم 1
(زاوية شارع عنترة بن شداد وشارع حيل هاهندسة, قبل شارع نعمي قيس).

Israeli-Palestinian Congress of the People
1000 Israelis & Palestinians will hold grassroots negotiatiations at the
Center of Tel-Aviv
Rabin Square, Tel Aviv, Israel
Today - Friday, March 17, 2017, 10AM – 4PM

Hundreds Israelis & Palestinians will negotiate peace in the famous Rabin
Square, Tel Aviv.

Hundreds of Palestinians negotiate solutions to the conflict around 40
tables in Rabin Square, Tel Aviv. The negotiations are open to the public
and invite public participation. The congress would be held in the presence
of international observers.

On July 22 - 500 Israelis & Palestinians negotiated peace in Rothschild
Boulevard, Tel-Aviv. On March 17 - we are doubling the number of
participants to 1000 and moving to the famous Rabin Square.

This event is an important step towards the establishment of a major
Israeli-Palestinian Public Negotiating Congress with political power which
we intend to establish in summer 2017. The congress is designed to involve
the people in the peacemaking efforts and motivate the leaderships to
conclude agreements.

The initiative is led by Dr. Sapir Handelman - an Israeli who received the
Peter Becker Award in Peace & Conflict Studies. Dr. Handelman and his
colleagues have successfully led 32 Israeli-Palestinian public negotiating
congresses in different locations around the US and Canada,and in Israel and
the West Bank.

This is the first time that 1000 people (500 Israelis &500 Palestinians)
will negotiate solutions to the conflictin the famous Rabin Square, Tel
Aviv.

In Gaza, which is under siege for nearly a decade, live about two million
people, half of them children under the age of 18,
They are living in poverty and destitution, under a very heavy mental and
physical pressure which seems destined to last indefintely.


On Fri.- Sat, March 17-18 between 10.00 - 16.00, a sale will be held at the
Almacen Cultural Center on 1 Hapninim St., Jaffa. Items of clothing, shoes,
jewellery, bags and household items, donated for the purpose will be sold -
all proceeds helping the ongoing effort to ameliorate the situation of the
Gaza children.
