Palestinian activists have called for mass demonstrations in the West Bank on Friday to demand an end to the Oslo Accords and other agreements signed between the PLO/PA and Israel.
The call came as public transportation workers and social activists announced that they have suspended their protests against the high cost of living until Sunday.
The decision to suspend the protests came despite calls from many youth groups to continue demonstrating against Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad.
Some activists said they have come under heavy pressure from the PA leadership to suspend the protests that swept through the West Bank in the past 10 days.
Signed by the Coordinating Committees of the Palestinian Revolution Against Corruption and Dependency, a statement published in Ramallah said that the demonstrations would be held under the motto “The Friday of National Dignity.”
The group said that it was also demanding the cancellation of the Paris Protocol, which regulates economic ties between the PA and Israel.
