At a heritage wedding to mark Land Day, Abu Khaldoun, an elderly Palestinian, recalls the last wedding he attended in Haifa before Palestine was seized and later declared the state of Israel.Land Day commemorates the events of March 30, 1976, when six Palestinians were killed and hundreds more wounded and jailed after clashing with Israeli police during a protest over the Israeli government's plan to expropriate 60,000 dunums of Arab-owned land in the Galilee. The traditional Palestinian wedding was organized by the Human Dialogue Forum.The typical DJs were absent from this wedding, replaced instead by a band dressed in Palestinian garb performing traditional songs and spoken word pieces.
