62 YEARS OF ISRAELI OCCUPATION, STILL BUILDING FOR LIBERATION: AN AFTERNOON FOR PALESTINE
“Our Old do not die and our Young shall never forget.” — Al-Awda-NY
For 62 years, Palestinians have lived in exile and occupation, comprising the oldest and largest refugee population that daily grows as Israelis continue to ethnically cleanse Palestine from its native people. For 62 years Palestinians and Arabs across the Arab world have fought to resist the Zionist policies of the Israeli government and its supporters.
As we near the 62nd anniversary of, Al-Nakba, the Zionist Israeli Occupation and Colonization of Palestine, Al-Awda-NY calls on friends of Palestine to join Al-Awda in commemorating the suffering of the Palestinian People, to celebrate Arab resistance, and to build the movement for a Free Palestine.
Join Al-Awda-NY on Saturday May 15, 2010 at 1p.m. for an afternoon of Poetry, Videos, a Game of Palestine Jeopardy, Youth Talent Show, and Organizing to strengthen our support for the liberation of Palestine and help the return of the Refugees.
