Please Join us on May 15th, Nakba Day, for a March from PSU’s Native Student and Community Center to Legacy Emanuel Hospital in support of the people of Gaza’s Great March of Return and for the rights of all Palestinians to return to their ancestral homelands، the end of the Gaza blockade and the end of the occupation
We will be stopping at various points along the way to recognize sites of structural oppression both in Portland and in Palestine.
