The Chant for Freedom in Nablus, Palestine
(Main Square – Nablus, Tuesday, around noon, 15 March 2011)
The Palestinian people called for unity in March 2011. Soon after their leaders met in Cairo and promised to end the split. Israel and the United States immediately set about breaking the unity. So far they have failed. The end of the split means a chance for freedom and social justice.
Khalil from Justice for Palestine in Brisbane returned to Palestine in Feb-Mar 2011 to visit his family in Nablus and to attend a Sabeel conference in Bethlehem. He took with him a video camera. Here is what he recorded at the unity demonstration on 15 March 2011 in the square in Nablus.
Nablus is a large Palestinian town of 126,000 people not that far from Al Quds (Jerusalem).
