"The 1948 Ongoing Naqba"
with Amjad Mitri of Badil: Resource Center for Palestinian Residency and Refugee Rights.
Palestinian refugees and internally displaced persons represent the largest and longest standing case of forced displacement in the world today. The Naqba, the Palestinian catastrophe, is the destruction of Palestine and the massive displacement of Palestinians by Israel during and following the 1948 Middle East war.
Join us on this Naqba Day, the 15th of May, in commemorating the Palestinian catastrophe of 1948 and in learning how the Naqba is not only an historical event, but an ongoing process that affects the lives of Palestinians wherever they are.
Amjad Mitri is the legal researcher with Badil: Resource Center for Palestinian Residency and Refugee Rights.
