Friday, December 25 2009 A demo in Sheikh Jarrah

Approximately 500 demonstrators gathered in the end of the street at Sheikh Jarrah, East Jerusalem. The demonstrators were singing songs and drumming to express the protest and show sympathy with the Palestinians who have been evacuated from their homes by settlers/

Even though the demo was coordinated with the police, the latter started arresting some demonstrators that had been arrested (in previous demos), claiming they were violating their release conditions; this happened in spite of court documents that were presented to them, proving the demonstrators were allowed to participate. Shortly after their arrest, all demonstrators were released from custody.
