Land Day:-

This year, El-Bireh City will observe land day through the official release of the encyclopedia “From El-Bireh to Berkley:- The history and remnants of the city of wells”

With the increasing land confiscations around the city of El-Bireh to expand illegal Zionist colonies, we will stress the rich Arab and Islamic history of the city of wells, El-Bireh, as a form of steadfastness on this land and condemnation of all the colonizing activities. Palestine was not a land with no man for a man with no land, Palestine had its people and was the land of co-existence before Zionists colonized and still colonizing its land, and its cities were inhabited before Zionist attacked

Land day is an annual day of commemoration for Palestinians of the events of that date in 1976. In response to the Israeli government’s announcement of a plan to expropriate thousands of dunams of land for security and settlement purposes, a general strike and marches were organized in Arab towns from the Galilee to the Negev.

In the ensuing confrontations with the Israeli army and police, six unarmed[3] Arab citizens were killed, about one hundred were wounded, and hundreds of others arrested.

Scholarship on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict recognizes Land Day as a pivotal event in the struggle over land and in the relationship of Arab citizens to the Israeli state and body politic. It is significant in that it was the first time since 1948 that Arabs in Israel organized a response to Israeli policies as a Palestinian national collective.

An important annual day of commemoration in the Palestinian national political calendar ever since, it is marked not only by Arab citizens of Israel, but also by Palestinians all over the world.
