Al Nakba - Commemorating 57 Years of Palestinian Dispossession

The state of Israel was declared on the 14th May 1948. 750,00 Palestinians were forced to flee their homes while others were massacred. Today six million Palestinians remain displaced around the world. The state that was allocated to them by the UN has been consistently denied. International humanitarian law is broken again and again as the illegal Israeli occupation continues.

The ‘Wellington Zionist Society’ is meeting at the City Gallery this Saturday to celebrate Israel’s ‘independence’ day.

57 years of ethnic cleansing is nothing to celebrate!

Please join us in a candlelit vigil to stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people.
