Please join our brothers and sisters from Voices for Palestine and Palestine Solidarity Committee to remember the Nakba (Arabic for “catastrophe”) of 1948, when Zionists forces destroyed over 400 villages and drove over 700,000 Palestinians out of historic Palestine to create what is now called Israel.
|Date:||Friday, May 10, 2019|
|Time:||4:00 – 6:00 pm|
4th & Pine Street
|Information:||Event information here →|
The ongoing Nakba of ethnic cleansing and apartheid still continues as Palestinians are attacked, besieged, and driven out of their homes by the Israeli military, and as the Great March of Return continues and Israel shoots down unarmed Palestinian protestors.
This year’s Nakba remembrance will include the call to Boycott of Israel on the arches at Westlake Park, and we will reach out to commuters during Friday rush hour. We will also evoke the ongoing Palestine refugee experience with PALESTINE: STOLEN HOMELAND, a display of more than 100 white tents inscribed with the names of over 400 of the destroyed villages from 1948 Palestine.
