73 years ago Zionist forces ethnically cleansed and eradicated over 500 villages and cities in Palestine, displacing over 750,000 Palestinians, and taking over 78% of the land of historic Palestine. Known as the Nakba, or catastrophe in Arabic, this forced displacement was the basis for the foundation of the Israeli state.
The Nakba continues today. From Jaffa to Jerusalem Israel continues to displace and exile the indigenous Palestinian population. While Palestinians living abroad and their descendants, uprooted by Israel’s ethnic cleansing, are denied their right of return, enshrined in international law.
To mark Nakba Week, join us for a webinar hearing from Palestinian refugees in exile talking about their own experiences of Israel’s ongoing Nakba.
This webinar is part of a series, hearing from all parts of the Palestinian population, about their experience of the Nakba.
Join us to hear from young Palestinians in exile about what both the historic and on-going Nakba means to them. Find out what they’ve learned from their families, and how the Nakba directly impacts their day-to-day lives.
