Houston: Nakba Day 2018
12 May 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Saturday, 12 May
Corner of Westheimer and Post Oak
We are gathering as a community to declare:
All Palestinian refugees and their descendants have the right to return to Palestine.
Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine.
The 11 year Gaza blockade must end.
Freedom for all political prisoners.
Commemorating 70 years of resistance since the Nakba (‘day of the catastrophe’) in 1948 displaced hundreds of thousands of Palestinians, Texas is holding a state-wide day of solidarity.
“Our chains will be broken before we are.”
– Marwan Barghouti
This day of action will be a show of our unity with other communities who have faced racism, displacement, expulsion, deportation, classism, sexism, transphobia, xenophobia, Islamophobia, and antisemitism.
This is a family-friendly event. We encourage you to fly Palestinian flags, wear keffiyeh with pride, and bring signs and banners in the spirit of resistance.
