New York City
Subway: 6 to Bleecker St; B/D/F/V to Broadway/Lafayette
In commemoration of the 59th anniversary of Al-Nakba (“the catastrophe”), when over 750,000 Palestinians were expelled from their homes and lands by invading Zionist armies in 1947-48, join Al-Awda New York, the Palestine Right to Return Coalition, for an afternoon of remembrance, education and organizing!
FILM SCREENING: “Al-Awda/The Return” – This film tells the story of Al-Nakba, as well as the struggles of Palestinian refugees to return to their original homes, lands and properties. Today, Palestinian refugees number near six million – the world’s largest refugee population, prevented from returning home because of their Palestinian Arab identity. Watch this educational film, produced by the Palestinian Return Center in the UK, to learn more about the history of oppression and resistance, and to move towards action!
GENERAL INTEREST MEETING: Following the film showing, Al-Awda New York will hold a general interest meeting. Find out what you can do, here in New York City, to get involved with the right to return movement, including working on cultural projects, Palestinian community organizing, educational work, rallies and demonstrations, and many more Al-Awda projects!
