Nakba73: Flash Picket for Palestine
May 05, 2021 at 07:27 PM

May 15, 2 pm, CBC Vancouver Plaza (700 Hamilton St.)

Bring your keffiyeh and mask and join us on May 15 for a physically distanced Nakba73 Flash Picket at the CBC Plaza.

May 15 marks 73 years of Palestinian dispossession and attempts to erase Palestine from the map of the world. It also marks decades of Palestinian resistance and refusal to accept Israeli settler colonialism and occupation.
Lets hold the Palestinian flag high in Vancouver; and show CBC that Palestine does indeed exist, contrary to its biased and racist language guide.
Lets also tell the Canadian government that their complicity in Israeli war crimes must end!

She is a playwright, a policy advisor to AlShabaka and is former public advocate for Australians for Palestine. She was for many years a media spokesperson for National Council for Canada Arab Relations (NCCAR) and moved in 2009 to Australia where her parents and many other members of her Palestinian family have found refuge.
