Nakba Day 1948, meaning “Day of the Catastrophe” the day Palestine was invaded by Zionist forces, over 700,000 Palestinians were driven from their homes and land, hundreds of Palestinian towns and villages destroyed and the state of Israel created on that land.
These refugees and their descendants number between 5 and 6million today all of which have no right of return to their home country.
69 years later and the Palestinian people are still suffering horrific abuse at the hands of their oppressor, no civil rights, no basic human rights. The Palestinian people are a normal people with normal aspirations, what they aspire is to live on their land with freedom and dignity as all people deserve.
The ethnic cleansing of Palestine is still happening today, we call upon Tesco to respect human rights and cease trading with Israel until Israel abides by international law in regards to illegal settlement and its’s daily violations of Palestinian human rights. Trading with Israel is funding apartheid and occupation.
Donegal Awareness For Palestine are organizing an hour long peaceful vigil in rememberance of Nakba Day and the continuous suffering of Palestinian people. There are at present 1600 Palestinian preisoners on hunger strike in Israeli prisons asking for their basic human rights as prisoners, family visits, phone calls, adequate medical care and the end administrative detention.
Tesco continue to profit from the murder and oppression of innocent civilians, we aim to raise public awareness of the Israeli origin of Tesco products.
Boycott, is a practical, non-violent,peaceful way we can all help!
Hope to see you there.
