'Global March to Jerusalem': Israel's Borders on High Alert as Huge Protests Loom

•,Common Dreams staff
 Coinciding with Land Day, activists are planning to hold a “Global March to Jerusalem” to protest “Israeli apartheid and ethnic cleansing, to demand access to Jerusalem for all peoples, and to uphold Palestinian rights under international law, including refugees’ right of return,” according to the website of the organizers’ North American branch. The campaign’s spokesperson, Zaher Berawi, said the participants of the march plan to “besiege Israel and its embassies over the world.” Organizers say they are hoping for 1 million people to demonstrate in various protests all over the world.

Israel has issued a warning to Arab states and the Palestinian Authority against allowing the march. Israel's IDF is readying crowd-dispersal equipment and the deployment of marksmen. Ha'aretz reports that the so-called Israeli "skunk" bomb will be used on Friday's marchers.
