a FREEXERO.COM event

The Walls of Nablus event image

  • Location: Interurban Gallery - 1 East Hastings (at Carrall)
  • Opening: Thursday, April 5, 6pm-9pm
  • Exhibition runs until April 28
  • Gallery Hours: Wednesday to Saturday, 1pm-5pm

The Interurban Gallery and ISM Vancouver present a photo-documentation exhibit entitled THE WALLS OF NABLUS: From The Romans To Hamas by FREEXERO.COM.

THE WALLS OF NABLUS documents the shocking destruction of this ancient city in Palestine by the illegal Israeli occupation as well as the ongoing resistance to the occupation.

The images reveal walls sprayed with graffitti and bullet holes. Layers of posters showing martyred fighters mix with politicians, cell phone ads and local event announcements.

Squat roman arches, narrow alleys, barricaded doors and piles of rubble tell the ongoing story of occupations, demolitions, alterations, repair and conflict.

The people of Nablus have been under brutal economic and military siege for 6 years. But like the walls of the city, the people's resistance and reslience remains strong.

  • FREEXERO.COM is a collective commited to confronting cultural and political elitism.
  • FREEXERO.COM is a collaboration of art and politics, a "Temporary Autonomous Zone" for conversations, performance and revelations.

Launch of the "Nakba-60 Campaign"

BADIL Resource Center for Palestinian Residency and Refugee Rights

60 Years After the UN Partition Plan

Launch of the "Nakba-60 Campaign" - a Global Campaign for the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People

"We had a country, but they they came and stole our country", members of the old generation of Palestinian refugees from towns and villages in what is now Israel summarize what happened between 1947 - 1949, and they call it the "Nakba" (catastrophe). "Look, they are stealing our country", say Palestinians in the Israeli-occupied West Bank today. They point at Israel's Wall, roads, military checkpoints and Jewish colonies which deprive them of access to some 40 percent of the land and cause more displacement. "This is our Nakba; the Nakba is ongoing", they say.

Today, 60 years after the UN Partition Plan, Palestinians and people of conscience worldwide launch a year-long campaign of public awareness-raising and education about the Nakba and Israel's discriminatory Apartheid-like regime over the Palestinian people in the 1967 OPT, Israel and in exile.
