[Dublin] Nakba Day: Evening Commemoration Vigil at the GPO (IPSC)
Join us on the evening of Nakba Day, Wednesday 15th May 2019, to highlight the issue of Palestinian refugees and their ongoing struggle for their UN-mandated Right of Return to their the homeland they have been illegally expelled and exiled from by the Apartheid State of Israel.
Between 5pm to 7pm we will be at the GPO on O’Connell Street, Dublin 1 we will be hosting a Nakba Gallery and vigil, informing the public about the plight of Palestinian refugees.
The event will take place to commemorate what Palestinians call Nakba Day which marks the 71st anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba (‘Catastrophe’) which saw the expulsion of over 750,000 people, two-thirds of the indigenous Palestinians, forcibly uprooted from their homeland in an act of ethnic cleansing that facilitated the foundation of the Apartheid State of Israel. Today, Palestinian refugees are once again caught up in the crisis, many of them risking their lives crossing the Mediterranean to flee conditions in Syria, endemic poverty and discrimination in Lebanon, and Israel’s cruel illegal siege of Gaza.
