Land Day 2015
March 30, 2015 in Palestine
Land Day is celebrated on March 30, 2015. Land Day is an annual day of commemoration for Palestinians of the events of that date in 1976. In response to the Israeli government’s announcement of a plan to expropriate thousands of dunams of land for “security and settlement purposes”, a general strike and marches were organized in Arab towns from the Galilee to the Negev. In the ensuing confrontations with the Israeli army and police, six Arab citizens were killed, about one hundred were wounded, and hundreds of others arrested.
In the intervening years, those events have become consecrated in the Palestinian memory as Land Day.

Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day
March 30, 2015 in the USA
In 2011, nearly 38 years after the final withdrawal of U.S. combat and combat-support troops from Vietnam, the Senate unanimously passed a resolution designating March 30, “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day.”
On March 30, 1973, all U.S. troops withdrew from Vietnam under the terms of the Treaty of Paris. This March 30th, the Senate has encouraged Americans across the country to recognize Vietnam veterans for their sacrifice and demonstrate a warm welcome to these soldiers who returned from war to a politically divided country.
More than 58,000 members of the United States Armed Forces lost their lives and more than 300,000 were wounded in Vietnam.

Take a Walk in the Park Day
March 30, 2015 in the World
Take a Walk in the Park Day is celebrated on March 30, 2015. You should visit a local park on that day instead of walking around the block or going to mall. A park is an area of open space provided for recreational use. It can be in its natural or semi-natural state, or planted, and is set aside for human enjoyment or for the protection of wildlife or natural habitats. An urban park is a park in cities and other incorporated places. Common features of urban parks include playgrounds, gardens, hiking, running and fitness trails or paths, bridle paths, sports field and courts, public restrooms, boat ramps and/or picnic facilities, depending on the budget and natural features available.
– Parks at first were only for the rich and elite until 1842, when Princes Park in Liverpool, England, the first park made specifically for the public, opened its gates for the first time.
– Manhattan’s Central Park is larger than Monaco, a sovereign state ruled by a prince on the southeastern tip of France, and Vatican City, the smallest country in the world.
– Now this isn’t a walk, but it happened in a park. The story goes that a politician was caught in St James’s Park, London having a little hanky-panky in the wintry night. When the Prime Minister of the time, Winston Churchill, got wind of this he was reported to have said: “In the park? In this weather? By God, makes you proud to be British!”
