"The Palestinian community in Madrid gathered to celebrate 'Land Day', commemorating annually the illegal Israeli seizure of Palestinian land on March 30, 1976.

The Palestinians summoned a general strike during that year, and began to mobilize and to protest against the confiscation of their lands. The protests resulted in the death of six young Palestinians at the hands of the Israeli army.

Every year, in Madrid, the Association of the Hispanic-Palestine Community and the Palestinian embassy call for the right to return of Palestinian refugees, an end to the Israeli occupation, and self-determination for the Palestinian people.

In a round table organized by the Palestinian Association, experts spoke about how the recent uprisings throughout the Arab World is giving determination to the Palestinians to continue their resistance against the occupation .

Observers say the 'Day of Land' organized by the Palestinian community in Madrid is an important initiative that needs full support in order to help Palestinians achieve their aspirations.
