[Galway] Nakba 66: Nakba Day Vigil (NUIG PSS)
This vigil on Thursday 15th May at 5pm is being orgainsed by the NUIG Palestine Solidarity Society and will take place to commemorate Nakba Day, which marks the 66th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba (‘Catastrophe’) which saw the expulsion of over 700,000 Palestinians, forcibly uprooted from their homeland in an act of ethnic cleansing that facilitated the foundation of the State of Israel. Since that time, Palestinian refugees have been denied their right of return to their homeland by the State of Israel.
Assemble at Eyre Square at 5pm.
