Free Palestine! Nakba Day 2021, Chinook Land, Pt 2

May 15 is Nakba Day. Catastrophe. Remembering May 15, 1948 when Palestinians were violently forced to leave their land, their homes by the settler colonial nation state of Israel.

73 years later, the violence has not stopped. Voices have not faltered. The call to return remains.

Part two of Free Palestine! series is the second half of Center for Study & Preservation of Palestine’s Nakba Day rally on Chinook land, known by settlers as Portland, Oregon. On this hot Saturday afternoon, listen, as Palestinians share stories of the 1948 Nakba as well as stories of the ongoing experience of ‘The Catastrophe,’ standing in solidarity with their people in the homeland resisting ethnic cleansing by the Zionist occupation state.

The live event had ASL interpretation. Stay tuned for transcripts!
