Al Nakba Protest & Car Caravan: Say NO to US Aid to Israel!
Saturday, May 15th @ 2pm

We will have a rally and then hold a car caravan on Central Avenue.
May 14, 1948 marks Israel’s declaration of “independence.” To Israelis, it’s a day of celebration. For Palestinians, it’s called Al Nakba, Arabic for The Catastrophe. During the 1948 war, at least 750,000 Palestinian men, women and children were ruthlessly attacked, massacred, and driven from their homes by Zionist terror groups, and have never been allowed to return–in violation of international law. 2021 marks 73 years of U.S.-backed Israeli occupation and apartheid.
Join us for our annual Al-Nakba protest to demand:
-End to U.S. aid to Israel
-Defend the BDS movement (Boycott, Divest, Sanctions)
-Speaking out for Palestine is not a crime!
Organized by the Anti-War Committee & American Muslims for Palestine – MN
