Friday, 15 May, 2015 marks the 67th Anniversary of al-Nakba, “the Catastrophe” in Palestine. This day commemorates the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from their land in 1948 for the creation of the state of Israel. The trauma and memory of al-Nakba is still live as millions of Palestinians living inside and outside of Palestine wait to return to their ancestral lands, while thousands more continue to be expelled from their homes.
Palestine solidarity activists in Toronto will join thousands around the world to commemorate this day. We encourage all CAIA allies, supporters and BDS activists to show their solidarity by attending and participating in these events.
