Since 1948, millions of Palestinians have been living as refugees in areas of the occupied Palestinian territory (the West Bank and Gaza Strip) and in surrounding host countries – mostly in Jordan, Lebanon and Syria. The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) has described their plight as “by far the most protracted and largest of all refugee problems in the world today”.
Despite the state of Israel’s ongoing campaign of ethnic cleansing, Palestinians continue to resist the occupation of their homeland. Worldwide, a solidarity movement is aiding their struggle, initiating a Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israeli apartheid.

May 15 marks the Palestinian Nakba (Catastrophe) day. In 1948, more the 780,000 Palestinians were ethnically cleansed from their homeland and more than 500 Palestinian villages depopulated and destroyed by Zionist terrorist death squads that were set up in Palestine under the protection of the British mandate. Today more than 7 million Palestinian refugees, the largest refugee community in the world, are living in exile, while 5 million Palestinians are living in the world’s largest open air prison in Gaza.
On the 65th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba join the ongoing campaign for justice for Palestine and say no to Israeli apartheid, colonialism and occupation.
Palestine solidarity groups across Australia are organising rallies to commemorate this anniversary on Friday 17th May. We will be meeting at 5.30 pm in the Murray Street Mall (next to Forrest Place, under the overpass). Please help spread the word…
