Palestinian Nakba Commemoration

Brisbane, QLD

May 15, 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the 1948 Nakba, the mass expulsion of Palestinians from their homeland. Between 1947 and 1949, Zionist paramilitaries, and subsequently Israeli forces, made 750,000 to one million indigenous Palestinians into refugees to establish a Jewish-majority state in Palestine.

Today more than 7 million Palestinian refugees are living in exile, while 5 million Palestinians live under the control of Israel’s regime of occupation, settler-colonialism and apartheid. The current American administration has also announced its intentions to move the American embassy to Jerusalem on May 14 to further consolidate the Israeli Apartheid state.

Join us on the 70th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba to say "NO to Israel’s ongoing, intensifying Nakba and its war crimes, and to demand the right of the Palestinian refugees to return home.

We will have speakers, hold the names of the villages of Palestine and together we will hold a silent march around the city to commemorate the Palestinian Nakba Day and to remember and stand with Palestine.
