[Dublin] Maha Abdallah on ‘Ongoing Nakba and Palestinian Resistance: Ending 75 years of Israeli Apartheid’

The Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign is honoured to host a public meeting with Maha Abdallah, renowned expert on human rights and the Palestinian freedom struggle.

The meeting, to mark the 75th Anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba, will take place on Monday 29th May at 7.15pm in The Pearse Centre, 27 Pearse Street, Dublin 2.


Maha will discuss the Ongoing Nakba (“Catastrophe” in Arabic), from the forcible displacement and dispossession of the Indigenous Palestinian people by Israel between 1947 and 1949, through to the situation today with Israel’s extremist government seemingly intent completing the settler-colonial project their antecedents began.

Maha will shed light on the struggle faced by Palestinians living under Israeli apartheid and occupation, explore the steadfast resistance demonstrated by the Palestinian people for three quarters of a century, and the pressing need for global solidarity and international action in pursuit of justice and freedom.

Join us for an evening of enlightening discussions and critical analysis, as we strive to deepen our understanding of the Nakba as an ongoing process, and the importance of international solidarity in the struggle for Palestinian rights.

This event is open to all individuals who are passionate about human rights, justice, and peace. Whether you are an activist, scholar, student, or concerned citizen, your presence and engagement will contribute to fostering a better understanding around this crucial topic.
