Palestinian Expulsion and Resistance

  • 37-62 89th Street Flushing, NY, 11372 United States (map)

Please join Queens Political Education and the Anti War Working Group for our political education event, “Palestinian Expulsion and Resistance: The Nakba, BDS, and the Great Return March.” The panel discussion will be held in Jackson Heights at 37-62 89th St.

Originally timed to coincide with commemoration of the Nakba, or the catastrophe, where the Palestinian people were expelled from their ancestral home, this event will focus on education about the Nakba, current sanction movements including the Boycott, Disinvest and Sanction (BDS), No Way to Treat a Child and the Great Return March.

Come listen from Raja Abdulhaq, the Executive director of Majlis Ash-Shura Islamic Leadership Council of New York discuss activist work in the Palestinian community. Additionally, a speaker from the Anti War Working Group will discuss their current work in trying to pass the “Promoting Human Rights for Palestinian Children Living Under Israeli Occupation Act” and how DSA members can become involved in the larger struggle for Palestinian liberation. This event was originally scheduled for May, but needed to be rescheduled due to intimidation towards the previous venue by reactionaries. This political education event is being rescheduled with the assistance of the Queens Branch and the Anti-War Working Group. Security will be provided by the Red Rabbits.
