Nakba Day in DC

Nakba Day in DC

In 1948, nearly 800,000 Palestinians were uprooted from their lands and displaced across the world. As a result of Zionist colonization, some 533 villages were erased and 33 massacres committed. Today nearly 70% of Palestinians live in exile outside their historic homeland prohibited from return. Hundreds of thousands live in refugee camps in surrounding Arab countries and in occupied Palestine. Five million Palestinians still live under Israeli occupation in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. Twenty-percent of Israel’s population are Palestinians who live as second class citizens in the apartheid and segregated state.
