WAFA reports that among the participants were the former Mayor of Nazareth, Ramez Jaraisy, Israeli MP Haneen Zoabi, and various heads of the Local Arab Authorities in Israel, who raised signs denouncing the Israeli government policy of displacement.

ā€œThis demonstration is part of a series of demonstrations aimed to stop the Israeli scheme,ā€ said Head of Ramya Local Committee, Salah Sawaʻid, adding: ā€œWe will remain in Ramya, our town, despite all the obstacles posed by the Israeli authorities in our way.ā€
