VANCOUVER, ALL OUT FOR PALESTINE. 74 years of settler colonialism, ethnic cleansing, and genocide as Palestinians continue to resist and fight against Israeli aggression since the Nakba in 1948. Every year we watch in horror as we witness the same acts of violence committed.
We have witnessed an escalation in the past couple of weeks with heightened aggression around times of worship during Ramadan and attacks against Al-Aqsa mosque, just like last year’s Unity Intifada, where Palestinians in Palestine and the diaspora rose up together internationally.
Last year, a flame was lit in the Palestinian resistance as Palestinians of Lydd, Haifa, Yaffa, Akka, and across the West Bank and Gaza rose up against 74 years of Zionist colonialism. All power to our people defending Jerusalem and Palestine for 74 years from Zionism and land theft. From Turtle Island to Palestine, we resist settler colonialism in all its forms.
