Please bring signage and banners to show support for all Palestinian prisoners currently on hunger strikes and in detention and to protest Arafat Jaradat's death by torture. Jaradat was arrested on 18 February on suspicion that he had thrown stones at Israelis. Guardian (http://tinyurl.com/axrvbln)

Al-Nakba Awareness Project discourages signage equating a "parity of suffering" or promoting "dialogue" and prefer those supporting the Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) as the late Stephane Hessel, Holocaust survivor, co-author of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights himself endorsed.
