Bedouin and others protest against the "Prawer Plan".<br />
The Prawer Commission, chaired by Ehud Prawer, Benjamin Netanyahu's director of planning, was established to resolve outstanding land issues between Bedouin in Negev desert and the State of Israel. The commission recommended that the inhabitants of 50% of unrecognized villages, some 30,000 people, are to be relocated to the seven existing government-built Bedouin townships.
