To mark Nakba Day 2020, on Wednesday 13h May the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign was honoured to host an online public meeting with Palestinian legal expert and political analyst Diana Buttu.
About the talk
Ms. Buttu discussed Israel’s latest plan to illegally annex large areas of the West Bank in the context on the ‘Ongoing Nakba’ which has seen the Palestinians subjected to seven decades of dispossession, ethnic cleansing, military occupation, mass incarceration, illegal annexation and racist apartheid.
72 years on from the violent colonial partition of Palestine in 1948 and the forcible expulsion of two thirds of its indigenous people, she will also discuss what Palestinians, internationals and the international community can do to prevent this new Nakba, and how we can effectively support the Palestinian people’s struggle for freedom, justice, equality and return.
