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.

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?
