Al-Nakba Demonstration

Posted by Administrator on May 11, 2008

Saturday, May 17

1:00 p.m.
Loring Park, Hennepin Avenue and Oak Grove Strreet, Minneapolis

Al-Nakba, “the catastrophe” in Arabic, commemorates the founding of the modern state of Israel created on the theft of large tracts of Palestinian lands and violent expulsion of the Palestinian people.

Since Israel was founded 60 years ago, millions of Palestinians have been forced to become refugees and thousands of Palestinians have been killed. This year has been especially brutal on the people of Gaza. Yet the Palestinians continue to struggle for their rights, their land and their resources.

This demonstration is to stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people and against U.S. military aid to Israel which is used for death, destruction and economic isolation of Palestinians.
