About 500 former Ikrit-Baram residents assembled Saturday outside the Baram church, the only structure still intact in that one-time border village, to protest military orders closing the area. The demonstration was peaceful and Israeli authorities did not intervene even though the assembly violated security regulations. A spokesman for the villagers, noting that Israel was established on the principles of liberty, justice and equality, said the villagers would continue to struggle for those principles until they are permitted to return to their former homes.
