The "Splintered Left" - A Field Definition

Today's protest action drew approximately 30 internationals and Palestinians as
well as a television crew from Al-Jazeera. I spoke to the organisers of the
protest before getting involved and they explained to me that the purpose of the
action is twofold and that it was firstly to document the illegal occupation of
the Jaber family's land by the settlers, and secondly to document the on-going
bias displayed by the Israeli Defence Force (IDF) in favour of these illegal
occupants of the Jaber family's land.

We arrived at the Jaber family's house on Friday morning at 10:15am. While the Jaber family looked on from their balcony, the group consisting of members from the ISM, Youth against Settlements, Ta'ayush and Sons of Abraham...

So, that's four groups and almost 30 persons.

Nice proportion. Seven-point- whatever.
