Protest Seventy One Years of Ongoing Systemic Nakba - Melbourne

Melbourne, VIC

Netanyahu kicked off his fifth term as Israeli Prime Terrorist with a bombing raid on Gaza. 25 Palestinians massacred. The Gazan people, locked in an open air prison, are enduring the worst conditions yet. Heroically, from Gaza, Haifa and throughout the Middle East, Palestinians continue to call for their right of return to their dispossessed homeland.

May 15th 1948 marks the day that three quarters of the Palestinian population 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.
