Two doctoral students’ journey to revive the Israeli left – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News

In recent months the Sheikh Jarrah Solidarity Movement has turned into a national movement called Solidarity, like the workers’ movement established in Poland 30 years ago. The weekly demonstrations in the small neighborhood have begun to spread to other neighborhoods in East Jerusalem. Last month they marched in Issawiya in protest against the authorities’ harassment of the residents there, and last week they went to Silwan to protest against the removal of a local activist from the village.Recently the movement has also begun to operate in Taibeh, the Wadi Ara, Lod, Al-Araqib and Beit She’an. Meanwhile, Inbar, Sharon and their friends are setting up three student groups – in Be’er Sheva, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem – under the slogan “Solidarity against fascism.”
