Protest for Palestine: 70 Years of Nakba

Sydney, NSW

May 15th 1948 marks the day that over 750,000 Palestinians were expelled from their homes and made refugees.

In 1948, the establishment of the Israeli state in Palestine through violent ethnic cleansing not only forced Palestinians from their homes, but also led to massacres of indigenous populations and the destruction of villages. 

After 70 years this bloodshed has not been forgotten, nor the right of Palestinians to return to their homeland. 

Join us to commemorate 70 years since the Nakba ("catastrophe") and to protest against the ongoing occupation of Palestine, on Monday May 15th, 6:30PM, Sydney Town Hall.
