May 15, will mark 63 years of the Palestinian Nakba (catastrophe).  In 1948, more than 750,000 Palestinians were ethnically cleansed from their homeland by Zionist forces, with more than 500 Palestinian villages depopulated and destroyed.   Today more than 7 million Palestinian refugees, the largest refugee community in the world, are living in exile.  Israel continues to colonise and ethnically cleanse Palestinian land through occupation and war.

On the 63nd anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba join the ongoing campaign to say no to Israel’s ongoing war crimes & ethnic cleansing of Palestine and demand justice for the Palestinian people.

Initiated by Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid
