May 15, marks the 75th anniversary of the Nakba, or the catastrophe, which refers the process of ethnic cleansing, colonization and dispossession led by the Zionist State of Israel, and backed by US imperialism, that saw over 750,000 Palestinians driven into exile and more than 500 towns and villages wiped from the map. The Nakba occurred just after the illegal establishment of the state of Israel in 1948, but is a process that continues till today with the ongoing colonization of land, enforcement of apartheid, military occupation and the denial of the Palestinian right to return.
On this 75th anniversary, the International Peoples’ Assembly affirms its complete solidarity with the struggle of the Palestinian people for freedom, self-determination and the right to return by participating in actions to commemorate the Nakba all over the world. We have also organized an online seminar to help arm those who stand with the Palestinian cause, with knowledge of the historical and geopolitical roots of Nakba and the historical and contemporary popular resistance.
