The worst worries of a child’s school day should be homework. Maybe a lost book, or an argument with a friend. No child’s walk to school should routinely involve armed soldiers and fear of sometimes being chased and assaulted by angry adults. But for the Palestinian children who live with their families in the small rural villages that make up the South Hebron Hills, this is how the school day begins. Illegal settlements and outposts isolate and separate their villages and soldiers are a constant in their lives.

Whether the current phase of Israel’s intensified repression and Palestinian popular resistance will evolve into a full-fledged intifada or not, one thing is already evident—a new generation of Palestinians is marching on the footsteps of previous generations, rising up en masse against Israel’s brutal, decades-old regime of occupation, settler colonialism and apartheid.

Monday conventioneers going to the Re/Max conference here in Boston saw 30 to 40 protesters saying NO OPEN HOUSES ON STOLEN LAND.
Peace activist groups gathered at Hynes Convention Center to protest RE/MAX's operations in occupied Palestinian Land. Re/Max International and Re/Max Israel sell settlement homes that are built on stolen Palestinian land. These settlements are in direct violation of international law. Re/Max Israel and Re/Max International profit from the continuing land theft from and dispossession of Palestinians.
Boston protesters say NO - No to Re/Max illegal operations.
