Join us for a vigil May 20th: 69 years – Nakba 2017

May 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Nakba-AFPThe Nakba – or ‘catastrophe’ – is the forces expulsion of Palestinain people from their homes in 1948.

Today we still fight for justice and thier safe return. As noted by the IMEU, the Nakba was not an unintended result of war. It was a deliberate and systematic act necessary for the creation of a Jewish majority state in historic Palestine, which was overwhelmingly Arab prior to 1948. Internally, Zionist Jewish leaders used the euphemism “transfer” when discussing plans for what today would be called ethnic cleansing.

We will be holding a vigil for this occasion in front of the town hall steps, on May 20th at midday
