The High Follow-up Committee for Arab citizens on Wednesday called on all Arab institutions, movements, organizations and businesses in Israel to participate in a one-day strike on Thursday, October 1, to protest "the deterioration of conditions faced by Arab citizens." The strike marks the anniversary of the October 2000 riots in which 13 Israeli Arabs were killed. In recent years, the Israeli Arab sector did not strike on October 1. According to a statement issued on Wednesday evening, Israel Arabs will protest against home demolitions, racial and political incitement, discrimination in the allocation of resources and intimidation. The strike will also express solidarity and national unity with Palestinians in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, the statement read. In addition to the strike, the organization is planning to hold a march in the town of Arrabe.
