Thousands Expected at Protests Throughout Israel, World Against Bedouin Resettlement

Musician Peter Gabriel signs letter in support of protests, calling on U.K. 'to make its relationship with Israel conditional on respect for human rights.'

Protestors will stage demonstrations throughout Israel and the Palestinian territories on Saturday against the Bedouin resettlement bill known as the Prawer-Begin plan. Young Israeli Arab activists have organized what they call an "international day of rage" together with community organizations to mobilize against the government's plan to relocate some 30,000 Bedouin living in Israel's Negev desert.
