Sign up for celebrating Palestine, June 22nd and June 23rd

You might be forgiven thinking, from the name, that small park BIG RUN is just another one of those lung-busting running fundraisers.

It is so much more than that! It is 24 hours of solidarity in a Sheffield open space, it is 24 hours of displaying aspects of what it means to be Palestinian, it is 24 hours of community joy as we take in the momentous achievement of Palestinian people.

This year it will be more so. There will be speakers from Palestine on this years theme – Land and Food ; there will be music and singing and a live zoom , if possible, to Gaza; there will be a solidarity supper, a torch of remembrance, kite flying and much much more.

You can sign up here and find out more about the programme here

Last year, young film makers in Gaza who had received some funding from SPaCE, used footage from the live zoom to make this wonderful film of the closing ceremony:

Nakba Day Action

Wednesday 15th May: Nakba Day. We will be outside the Town hall from 10.30 am until approx 2.30 pm with a display of Nakba photographs. NB the rally will now start at 1.45 pm as the Council meeting is not starting until 2.30 pm. Palestinians, Lena and Sahar will be speaking plus Sheffield Councillors.

Remembering the Nakba in Sheffield, 2024

Nakba Day is the 15th May; it is the day Palestinian people remember the expulsion of over 750000 from their homes, and when over 500 villages were destroyed by Israeli forces. So powerful is this memory in Palestinian culture, keys are used as symbol to remind them of their right to return and many families have the key to the properties they were expelled from.

We are having a march on 11th May to stand in solidarity with Palestinians , a balloon launch on 14th and 15th May , weather permitting, to highlight the complicity of the UK government in the current genocide and a rally on 15th May at the Town Hall from 11 am.

On 18th May we urge everyone to join the demo in London.

We are also leafleting the Eurovision broadcast at the Light in the evening of the 11th May. How can Israel be included now we can see the culmination of ethno-supremecy?
