“March For His Life” Arrives to Jerusalem

Following twelve days, over two hundred kilometres and approximately 200,000 accumulated active supporters who joined along the way, the march for Gilad Shalit’s release, “March For His Life”, has arrived to Jerusalem. Jerusalem, Israel. 08/07/2010.

Parents Aviva and Noam Shalit realize their 12-day march from their home in the Galilee is just ‘a cup of tea’ compared to the next difficult chapter of their battle that still lies ahead. The Shalits now plan to stay in the protest tent opposite the residence of PM Benyamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem and return home only with their son Gilad.Their hope is that public opinion will pressure the government to do everything possible for the release of Gilad after four full years in Hamas captivity.

Gilad Shalit (born 28 August 1986) is an Israeli soldier abducted by Palestinian militants in a cross border raid near the Gaza Strip on the 25th June 2006 and has been held hostage ever since. Hamas refuse Red Cross visits to Gilad and other rights afforded by the Geneva Conventions.
