10:57am

Welcome to Al-Akhbar's coverage of Land Day, with a series of protests planned globally under the banner of the Global March to Jerusalem (GMJ).

GMJ spokesman Zaher Birawi said the day would help put pressure on Israel to reform.

"The global march to Jerusalem is very important as a start of a global peaceful, popular way of protesting against Israeli actions in Jerusalem."

"Our aim is to mark it as an international event to demonstrate solidarity with Palestinians and to protect Jerusalem."

"We hope it will unite all citizens of the world to put an end to Israeli disregard of international laws."
