  • Description

    THOUSANDS OF ARAB WOMEN, INCLUDING WIVES OF CABINET MINISTERS AND DIPLOMATS, TODAY (THURSDAY) EXPRESSED THEIR SUPPORT FOR ARAB WOMEN IN ISRAELI-OCCUPIED TERRITORY WITH MEETINGS AND SIT-IN STRIKES IN A NUMBER OF MIDDLE EAST COUNTRIES. IN CAIRO, UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC, ABOUT 200 WOMEN ATTENDED A MEETING AFTER A PLANNED SIT-IN STRIKE WAS CALLED OFF BECAUSE EGYPTIAN AUTHORITIES WITH-HELD PERMISSION.

    THE SIT-IN STRIKES HAD BEEN CALLED BY THE PALESTINIAN WOMEN'S ASSOCIATION TO DRAW THE ATTENTION OF WORLD PUBLIC OPINION TO THE PLIGHT OF THE PALESTINIAN WOMEN.

    A SPOKESMAN FOR THE ARAB SOCIALIST UNION, EGYPT'S ONLY AUTHORISED POLITICAL BODY, SAID IN CAIRO THAT A STRIKE WAS A NEGATIVE ACT AND IT WAS FAR BETTER FOR THE WOMEN TO DISCUSS MEANS OF POSITIVE CONTRIBUTION TO THE PALESTINE CAUSE.

    INSTEAD OF A SIT-IN, ABOUT 200 WIVES OF ARAB DIPLOMATS MET AT A CAIRO SOCIAL CLUB BELONGING TO THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY AND DISCUSSED HOW TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE PALESTINIAN CAUSE.

    SIT-INS WERE HELD, HOWEVER, IN IRAQ, JORDAN AND LEBANON.
