On Sunday, nearly one hundred Palestinians gathered Manger Square to stand in solidarity with the Egyptian and Tunisian revolutions, and the current movements in Yemen and Algeria. Participants carried Palestinian, Egyptian and Tunisian flags and shouted slogans for the victory of the two revolutions, haling the great accomplishments that have been achieved by both Egyptians and Tunisians.
Stop the Wall Campaign and the West Bank popular committees called for the solidarity demonstration, with participants gathering in the center of Bethlehem and marching through the streets of the old city.
Representatives from the Bethlehem-area popular committees spoke on the occasion, affirming the solidarity of the popular committees with the revolutions in Egypt and Tunis. They called on the spokesmen of Arab organizations to go down into the streets and join the people and refuse to accept humiliation and shame. They also called for an end to the divisions and the necessity of real action for the sake of achieving national unity.
