CounterPunch Readers Reply to Palm Sunday Preps

I have just read the article on the Palm Sunday march to Jerusalem. Non-violent protest against the atrocities which rain down on the Palestinian people is a wonderful idea. It brings tears to my eyes to think of it and wish we could be there to join in the event

Both my wife and I wish you all the very best of luck and hope that it will stir the wider media audience to become more objective of the plight of the Palestinian people.

Our thoughts will be with you on Palm Sunday and our very best wishes for a peaceful and joyous occasion.
