Jerusalem gay pride “March For Equality” reaches the Knesset, the Israeli Parliament, exactly one year after the massacre in the Bar Noar gay youth club in Tel-Aviv. This year’s parade was very conservative in comparison to previous years, sounding a quiet and solemn political message and commemorating Nir Katz and Liz Trobishi, victims of gunshots on August 1st, 2009.
11-Dec-2009, Jerusalem – Parallel to the first human rights march taking place on the International Day For Human Rights in Tel-Aviv, several dozen Jewish-Israeli activists in Jerusalem marched in solidarity with East-Jerusalem Palestinians. From West to East was the slogan for the march that began in Jerusalem’s downtown area in the west and progressed to the Arab neighborhood of Sheik Jarach in the east, ending in a demonstration at the El-Kurd home, from which the Palestinian El-Kurd family were evicted by court order in November. Their home has since been taken over by Jewish right-winged settlers.
