Palestinians demand opening of Shuhada St

 "Open Shuhada street" protest, Hebron, Palestine, 25/2/2011

My latest at Waging Nonviolence covers the February 25th demonstration in which Palestinians demanded the opening of Shuhada Street in the West Bank city of Al-Khalil (Hebron).  
Protestors attempted to reach Shuhada Street but were intercepted by Israeli forces who formed human walls to prevent Palestinians from reaching the street that formerly hosted the city’s main market. The protestors marched towards the line of soldiers, holding signs and chanting, “We don’t want the settlers nor the occupation,” and, “the people want Shuhada Street.”
Finish reading the post. There's compelling video there as well.
