May 15th marks Nakba Day (“catastrophe” in Arabic) which remembers the ethnic cleansing of up to a million Palestinians from their land and homes by Israeli militias in 1948.
Palestinians continue their struggle for human rights and self-determination 74 years later in 2022 despite on-going theft of their land, bulldozing of their homes and widespread suffering under Israeli military occupation.
To mark this important day Palestine solidarity supporters will be out in public around the country – we will bring full details of events in the next newsletter but those organized so far include:
Auckland: Aotea Square at 2pm. Facebook event page here
New Plymouth: Puke Ariki Landing 2pm to 3pm. Facebook event page here
Christchurch: Bridge of Remembrance 12 noon, Facebook event page here
Others will be added in the coming week. See PSNA events here. Expect these as well as the above:
- Bay of Islands
- Palmerston North
