Al Nakba marked in NYC (Fight Back! News/staff)

New York, NY - Over 100 people gathered in the Bay Ridge neighborhood of Brooklyn on May 15 to commemorate 71 years since the Nakba, or “catastrophe.” The Nakba marks the 1948 anniversary of Israel’s expulsion of over 700,000 Palestinians from their land.

The rally was organized by Within Our Lifetime - United for Palestine (WOL) with speakers from other Palestinian and solidarity organizations.

The speakers emphasized that despite 71 years of occupation, the fight remains strong and that Palestine will one day be free.
