Nakba Vigil & March
Friday, May 14, 5.30pm
King George Square.
May 15, 2021 marks the 73rd anniversary of the 1948 Nakba, the mass
expulsion of Palestinians from their homeland. Between 1947 and 1949,
Zionist paramilitaries, and subsequently Israeli forces, made 750,000 to
one million indigenous Palestinians into refugees to establish a
Jewish-majority state in Palestine.
Join us on the 73rd anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba to say NO to
Israel’s ongoing, intensifying Nakba and its war crimes, and to demand the
right of the Palestinian refugees to return home.
We acknowledge that we meet on the stolen lands of the Yuggera and Turrbal peoples, whose sovereignty over this land was never ceded, and who have led the fight against colonialism for over 250
