Nakba 70

It has been 70 years since the 1947-49 Nakba (catastrophe), in which over 700,000 Palestinians were expelled from their homes, killed or forced to flee to neighboring countries, leading up to and following the establishment of the state of israel. The Nakba includes documented massacres such as Deir Yassin, on April 9, 1948, and the destruction of hundreds of Palestinian villages. Nakba Day is May 15.

In commemoration of the Nakba, and the determination of the Palestinian people for liberation, a series of events is being planned in the Bay Area. The details are still being worked out. Information will be available in April and you can go to the QUIT! website, www.quitpalestine.org, or the Arab Resource and Organizing Center (AROC) www.araborganizing.org.
