Atlanta: Nakba 73 – Ongoing Nakba, Ongoing Resistance
May 15 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Saturday, 15 May
National Center for Civil and Human Rights
100 Ivan Allen Junior Blvd NW
Atlanta, GA, USA
Join the Palestinian Youth Movement on Saturday, May 15th at 1:00 PM at the National Center for Civil and Human Rights (100 Ivan Allen Jr Blvd NW, Atlanta, GA 30313) to commemorate the 73rd anniversary of al-nakba, the violent mass expulsion of Palestinians that occurred in 1948, and stand against the injustices taking place in Jerusalem, Sheikh Jarrah.
For over a decade, the Zionist occupation army has terrorized Palestinians in the neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah in Jerusalem in attempt to forcibly evict families from their homes and replace them with illegal Israeli settles. Over the last few weeks, violence has escalated and Palestinian families are resisting expulsion. We ask Atlanta to show up and express our outrage and solidarity. Until liberation and return!
NOTE: We will be observing CDC guidelines and ask that those attending wear masks and take social distancing measures. Masks and hand sanitizer will also be provided.
