On Saturday, May 16, FOPWA will be holding our annual Perth rally marking the Nakba (or catastrophe); the day in 1948 when 700 000 Palestinians were driven from their homes, with hundreds of villages being destroyed, as the state of Israel was being founded. The annual demonstrations mark a day of commemoration. Yet, they are also a protest against the ongoing dispossession and oppression of the Palestinian people today, from the periodic bombardment of Gaza, to the expansion of illegal settlements, to the inhumane treatment of Palestinian political prisoners.
