Palestinian Nakba Day

Brisbane, QLD


Join us to commemorate Palestinian Nakba Day. 15 May in Brisbane Square, Meanjin.

May 15, 2019 marks the 71st 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. current American administration has moved the American Embassy to Jerusalem further consolidating the Apartheid state.

Join us on the 71st 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.

Wednesday 15 May 2019, 5pm

Venue: Brisbane Square - Meanjin, 266 George St, Brisbane QLD
