Nakba Day

(Voir cette page en français...)

We invite you to a demonstration Sunday, May 12, 2019 in Montreal to commemorate the Nakba. The "Nakba" is the word in Arab for the "catastrophe" endured by the Palestinians at the time of the creation of Israel in 1948, when Israel dispossed almost 1 million Palestinians from their homes and lands, violating UN resolution 181.

This demonstration is organized by a collective of organizations, including CPF-Q, CJPME, the BDS-Quebec Coalition, CISO, SPHR McGill, SPHR Concordia, SPDH UdeM, SPDH UQAM, Tadamon and PAJU. Join us as we commemorate the Nakba and give tribute to Palestinian mothers.
