(These protests showed that Palestinians are untied against occupation whenever they live or under which authorities )
(Ma’an) — A global “Day of Rage” against the Prawer Plan took place in nearly 30 cities worldwide on Saturday, Nov. 30., and dozens were detained as Israeli police attacked protests .
Large demonstrations in more than 14 countries united Palestinians, and citizens of many other countries in protest against the plan, which if implemented will displace tens of thousands of Bedouins from their homes in southern Israel.
Although the protests were largely peaceful worldwide, protestors were met with force within Israel, as Israeli police attacked the large demonstrations in the Negev, Haifa, Umm al-Fahm and Jerusalem, detaining dozens.
Protestors in the West Bank were also met with force, and three Palestinians were detained as they marched near Ramallah towards the Israeli settlement of Bet El.
Particularly striking about the protests inside Israel were that Israeli police used violent tactics of “riot dispersal” commonly used against Palestinians in the West Bank but rarely seen within Israel.
The majority of demonstrators in the Negev, Haifa, Jaffa, and Jerusalem were Palestinians with Israeli citizenship, a factor that activists said encouraged Israeli police to use levels of violence rarely witnessed by majority-Jewish protesters.(see videos)

BEST BANNER I HAVE EVER SEEN :)
What started out a simple TV joke has got bigger, much bigger; and the Jimmy Kimmel issue has now spiraled out of control. It seems that the network’s apology, Kimmel’s apology, attempts to embarrass and harass him and the seemingly endless protests are not enough; this is now an issue only fit for the White House!
Over 100,000 angry citizens have demanded that their petition, demanding Kimmel’s show be axed, be approved by the White House.
Kimmel’s TV skit, which saw a young child suggesting that Chinese people be killed, has sparked the largest Chinese protest in US history, in New York. It saw Chinese Americans take to the streets en masse, holding up signs urging the TV network to “Fire Kimmel” and saying “Killing is not a joke”.
I was there today….It was so cool! But our government does not react still…:(

Never forget what people did for you, no matter what. History is what shapes us and we live in a world where people suffered for our right to have what we have. Never take it for granted, use your vote and freedom of speech no matter what your agenda is. People have died for freedom, don’t let their death be in vain.
