Jordan regime prevents sit-in outside British Embassy
The Jordanian security forces suppressed Wednesday afternoon a sit-in organized outside the British Embassy in Jordanian capital Amman in protest against Balfour Declaration.
The protesters held banners reading: “The Balfour Declaration 1917 is an ill-famed promise from those who do not own to those who do not deserve”.
A movement called the Balfour Declaration Centenary Campaign had earlier urged for action outside the British Embassy in Amman marking the 99th anniversary of the declaration.
The 2nd of November marks the centenary of the Balfour Declaration of 1917, which began the still-ongoing occupation of Palestine and sowed the seeds of an endless nightmare for the Palestinian people, both those who were forced to flee at gunpoint and those who have managed to remain in the shredded remains of their homeland under Israel’s brutal military occupation.
