Nakba Commemoration 2016

Sun, May 15, 2016 4:00pm - 6:00pm
ArtRage Gallery, 505 Hawley Ave.

A community commemoration of the Nakba. Nakba means “Catastrophe” in Arabic. It refers to the destruction of Palestinian society in 1948 when approximately 750,000 Palestinians fled or were forced into exile by Israeli troops. Today, there are more than 4 million registered Palestinian refugees worldwide. Israel refuded to allow Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and to pay them compensation, as required by UN Resolution 194 of 1948.

Gaza Solidarity Vigil

Fri, Aug 14, 2015 4:00pm - 5:00pm
corner of East Genesee St. and Erie Blvd. (opposite the fire department).

Gaza remains in crisis after last summers 50-day Israeli assault which killed 2,200 Palestinians, including 50 children. On the Israeli side, 73 people were killed, all but six of them soldiers.  A year later, none of the 12,000 homes destroyed in Gaza have been rebuilt, due in large part to the ongoing Israeli blockade. Unemployment in Gaza now stands at 43 percent, the highest in the world.
