Asheville, NC: Nakba Day: Asheville Solidarity with Palestine!
May 15, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm
May 15, 2018 marks 70 years since the forced displacement of 750,000 Palestinians and the final day of the #GreatReturnMarch, when Palestinian refugees living in Gaza will attempt to cross the militarized fence and return to their homelands. These nonviolent demonstrations began on March 30 and are being led by grassroots Palestinian civil society. Forty-one Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces since the Great March of Return protests began. With conviction, Asheville residents stand in solidarity with Palestinians who demand their basic human rights.
Join Jewish Voice for Peace, the Palestine Appalachia Solidarity Collective, and Just Peace for Israel / Palestine on Tuesday, May 15, in solidarity with the Palestinian Great March of Return and in commemoration of 70 years of Nakba (catastrophe) for the Palestinian people.
