48 is an important number for Palestinians, representing the year 1948 when hundreds of thousands were expelled from their homeland by Zionist paramilitaries during the Nakba (‘Catastrophe’) and turned into stateless refugees. To the present day, these refugees and their descendants have been denied their UN-mandated Right of Return due to racist laws implemented by the Apartheid State of Israel.
