|Association of Free Cyber Activists in Abyaneh, Iran|
The group vowed to mobilize its members and their networks to make the march a success. The association was formed at the end of a summit held on the side of International Digital Media Fair in Tehran from the 9th to the 15th of October 2011.
More than fifty cyber activists coming from Italy, France, Australia, Chile, Cuba, India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Norway, Turkey, Palestine, Lebanon, UAE, Bosnia and the UK took part in the summit organized by International Union of Unified Ummah. Such meeting was concluded with the decison to form the Association in order to coordinate the activities of the cyber activists around the world in resisting oppression, isolation and socio-economic injustice.
“The members of the association declared their full support to the Global March to Jerusalem (GMJ)”, said Jamal Daoud, the interim Secretary of the Association. “The founding members expressed their deep concerns about the situation in the Holy City and the actions of the Israeli authorities to change its demography”. In the last day of the summit, the members of the Association discussed about the ways to raise awareness over the situation in the occupied Palestinian Territories and about the ways to support the native population in its struggle for freedom and independence.
They have also covered the topic of how to get actively involved in the GMJ. “The members discussed about the best practical ways to take part in the march. These include mobilizing cyber networks, producing films and clips about the issue, posting them on the Internet, and organizing forums and exhibitions to encourage people to participate”.
The march is already attracting the support of many organizations and activists’ groups. While expecting many obstacles in achieving these goals, the groups are highly enthusiastic to expose the brutal nature of the Israeli occupation of Palestine and the International Community’s hypocrisy on this issue. The group members noted that the Israeli occupation and brutality were going on for more than 63 years without any meaningful measure to put an end to them.The members believe that it is the time that international activists and freedom-loving people unite to condemn Israeli atrocities and to demand these atrocities to end.
The founding committe is due to meet in two months time in order to finalize detailed documents and the steps to achieve the declared objectives.
