Join our Nakba Day protests this week!
Tomorrow, Wednesday 15th May is Nakba Day. It will mark 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.
We ask you to join our commemoration protest atcions which aim 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. Today, Palestinian refugees are once again caught up in crises, 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.
