July 3: Memorial for Razan al-Najar in her Ancestral Village


In response to a call for solidarity to feminist groups from Gazan women marching to the Gaza apartheid fence, a ceremony was held honouring the memory of Razan al-Najar, a volunteer health worker who was deliberately targeted and shot in the back during the Great March of Return, despite being clearly marked as a medic. The ceremony took place Salameh, Razan’s family’s village, from which they were expelled in 1948.

Early in the morning, protestors changed the signs marking Hertzel streets in the area of the protest to Al-Awda street, and Ben-Zvi street to Razan al-Najar street. Watch the video of the memorial below:
