The ANSWER Coalition is supporting a Nabka Day event organized by NY4Palestine and hosted by Al-Awda NY: The Palestine Right to Return Coalition, Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network, NYC Students for Justice in Palestine, MAS-NY and American Muslims for Palestine. We are encouraging all ANSWER members and supporters to join this important march in commemoration of Al-Nabka.
On the 68th anniversary of the occupation of Palestine, and as the Palestinian people enter the 68th year of dispossession and exile, we call on all Palestinians, friends of Palestine and supporters of justice and liberation to come together to march and rally, commemorate the Nakba, stand against the continuing Nakba, and call for the right of return for Palestinian refugees and freedom for Palestine.
68 years after the Nakba - the war of 1948 in which over 800,000 Palestinians were driven from their homes and land and the state of Israel created on that land - Palestinians continue to struggle for their right to return, for freedom from occupation, for justice, and against the Nakba that continues today.
After a rally at City Hall, we will march over the Brooklyn Bridge for an afternoon of Palestine-focused and family-friendly activities at Cadman Plaza Park.
