Arwa, to achieve this short walk into Shuhada Street, had to cross two of the most notorious checkpoints where nine people have been killed in the last six months.

While Labour nashes its teeth in the dust storm conjured by seasoned Zionists, we will continue to concentrate on the central issue: the recognition that Palestinians are denied, daily, basic rights to movement. Here is the flag planted in the wilds of Scotland this week
Why not join us in the right to roam walk in 2016?
We are raising funds for:
Sheffield Palestine Women’s Scholarship Fund and Children’s Projects in Gaza
We will be starting this leg on April 25th 2016 where we finished last year, at Morvich; and we will be arriving at the end of our Right2Roam Walk, at John-o-Groats, on Saturday 21 May. The full itinerary is here.
Solidarity & fund raising walks along the R2R route (e.g. Bristol & Edale) are being organised for the final day
As in previous years, there will also be a solidarity walk in Gaza, also the same day: we will all be with the people of Palestine in spirit even though they are unable to be with us.
