Under the title of "Stop the boycott and the siege on the Palestinian people," hundreds of people comprised of a wide coalition of peace movements and political parties, held a protest march and rally in Tel Aviv Saturday night to mark the 39-year anniversary of Israel's "occupation of the Palestinian territories." Among the speakers at the rally were Shulamit Aloni, Salman Natur, Yehudah Shenhav, Terry Bulata and Samya Bamiya. The main messages of the rally were:

  • Democratic elections should be respected.
  • Democracy is no reason for punishment.
  • Negotiations with Palestinian elected representatives, without preconditions. Participating groups and organizations included the Coalition of Women for Peace, Gush Shalom, Ta'ayush, Hadash, Balad, Banki, Yesh Gvul, Bat shalom, AIC, ICAHD, Student Coalition of Tel Aviv University, The Campus is Not Silent, and Artists Without Walls.
