Dozens of Israelis and Palestinians protested in the Jerusalem Marathon

This Friday, 17th of March, the Jerusalem Marathon took place, marking 50 years to the “unification” of the city.

Palestinian public committees along with Free Jerusalem group organized a protest in front of the marathon.

The protesters wished to remind the residents and the participants that Jerusalem is not a united city in which sports and cultural activities are neutral, but rather it is a city of which part is under occupation.

The marathon presents Jerusalem as a normal, cosmopolitan city, and many foreigners participate in the race.

The route of the marathon as in previous years extends beyond the 1967 seamline and disrupts the lives of many Palestinians, who are not party to the celebration.

Here are photos from the protests, courtesy of the protest committee:
