Nakba 2011 – The right of return.

15 05 2011

Today marks the 63rd anniversary of the Nakba.

*Nakba – “The catastrophe”
1948 was the year that the Israel state was established by expulsion and disposition of hundreds of thousands Palestinians from their homes and their lands, and more than 500 villages were depopulated and later completely destroyed.

Events around the world saw Palestinians demanding their right of return to Palestine through protests. People in Lebanon and Syria marched to the borders with nothing but voices and flags and in return were met with bullets.

21 peope have died so far today and who knows how many more injured.
10 in Lebanon, 8 in Syria, 2  in Gaza and 1 in the West Bank. It is become known as ‘Bloody Sunday’

Protests

30 01 2009

The last 4 weeks I been attending the Saturday Protests in London. Some are along with the biggest demonstrations in London’s history, people of all nationalities were there not only arabs, and we had huge support from asians and english ppl who were protesting with us.  The protests have took place in Embankment, Trafalgar square, Portland place (BBC offices), Hyde park and the Israeli embassy, we marched through various streets in London including Parliament street. There were speeches held at BBC, Hyde park and Trafalgar square.

The protests have took place all over the world not just London, so for those who say.. Why protest? the answer is simple.. we need to get our voices heard!! take a look at this..

What the people say

 

Here are some more short clips from some of the protests.
