On 7 April, scores of Palestinian and Israeli activists held a ‘Stop Annexing the Jordan Valley’ Freedom March organised by Combatants for Peace (CfP).

In the Jordan Valley, the Israeli government conducts live firing near Palestinian homes, deprives Palestinian farmers of water, restricts Palestinian sheep-herding, and demolishes Palestinian homes, while giving full support to illegal Israeli settlements.

The Freedom March went from a settler-only road to the Palestinian-Israeli Peace Farming project at Jericho where there were speeches from Israeli and Palestinian organisers.

CfP holds nonviolent Freedom Marches on the first Friday of every month to protest at Israeli occupation of the West Bank.
