10,000 to join 'March to Jerusalem'

UNITED: Gathering at Stadium Malawati to show solidarity with Palestinians

KUALA LUMPUR: ABOUT 10,000 people are expected to attend Malaysia's edition of the Global March to Jerusalem (MyGMJ), a worldwide movement aiming to free Jerusalem and Palestine without war, at Stadium Malawati in Shah Alam on March 30.

The gathering will be held in conjunction with other global marches worldwide and will see participants from Palestine and Israel's neighbouring countries march as close as they can to Jerusalem in a bid to free the city and its people as well as liberate Palestine.

Other supporting countries will also hold events in their cities. Malaysia is one of 131 countries supporting the movement.

More than 600 Malaysians are expected to participate in the gathering.

MyGMJ chairman Dr Mohd Tahir Rahman said the gathering was in line to calls for an end to policies affecting the people of Jerusalem.

Tahir said the movement was non-violent and had garnered support from various religious leaders and international figures.
