The 3rd Annual Nakba Day of Action – Saturday, May 15, 2021

73 years ago, over 750,000 Palestinians were displaced from their homes and their homeland by the establishment of the Zionist state, backed by the big powers. This displacement is ongoing and must be stopped!
Our demands include: End the occupation.
No annexation of any portion of the West Bank.
Lift the siege of Gaza.
Tear down the apartheid wall.
For Israel to provide full health services and vaccination against the pandemic for all Palestinians in the territories it controls.
For the right of all Palestinian refugees to return home.
Boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel and its economy until Palestinian rights are fully respected.
When: Saturday, May 15, 2021 at 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm (EST)
Where: https://youtu.be/t7hA1uUx_6Y
We aim to express our solidarity with the Palestinian people by presenting a number of speakers and performers of music and poetry. If you are part of an organization, please endorse this important event.
Organized by the Greater Toronto BDS Committee, a member of the
