71 Years of Palestinian Resistance: Rally to Commemorate 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 71 years this bloodshed has not been forgotten, nor the right of Palestinians to return to their homeland.

Join us to commemorate 71 years since the Nakba (catastrophe) and to protest against the ongoing occupation of Palestine.

Saturday 11 May 2019, 1pm-3pm

Venue: Queen Victoria Building, 455 George St, Sydney NSW
