We attended a rally I Ramallah of people who wanted to express their concerns over the closing of al-Asqa and associated repression of Palestinians in Jerusalem. These are Palestinians who can not get into Jerusalem. They formed a long human chain. Interestingly the chain was divided, woman at one end men at the other. Some women took a position on the other side of the street. Which included very tradition woman wearing niqab, woman who kept a sign in front of their face, to woman who were obviously traditional organizers, walking along the line talking and inspiring women, directing the demonstration, talking to the media. The only one person gave a speech (the US rallies could learn from that).
