Adelaide: Commemoration of the Palestinian Nakba
15 May 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Wednesday, 15 May
82 Kintore Avenue
Join us to commemorate 71 years since the Nakba (“catastrophe”) with a small gathering at the Migration Museum in Kintore Ave to acknowledge and hear the experiences of local Palestinian families by the Palestinian community plaque in the Museum forecourt.
May 15th, 1948, marks the day that over 750,000 Palestinians were expelled from their homes and made refugees.
In 1948, the establishment of the State of Israel in historic Palestine through violent ethnic cleansing not only forced Palestinians from their homes, but also led to massacres of indigenous populations and the destruction of their villages.
After 71 years this bloodshed has not been forgotten, nor the right of Palestinians to return to their homes, property and land.
