Commemorating the 1948 Nakba
This Sunday May 15 I will join many others to commemorate the 68 year anniversary of the Nakba.
Israel was not created on empty land. In 1948 hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were killed and driven out of their homelands to make way for the new Israeli state. The Nakba is also an ongoing injustice that is part of the daily reality of Palestinians living today, 68 years later. Many live under occupation, and refugees from the Palestinian diaspora, and their descendants, number in the millions.
