Nakba anniversary speaking tour of Ireland by Palestinian academic and refugee Kholoud Ajarma

Venues include Derry, Omagh, Portadown, Dublin, Cork and Limerick

TO COMMEMORATE the 69th anniversary of the Nakba, Palestinian academic and refugee Kholoud Ajarma will speak at a number of locations around Ireland at the invitation of the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign.

Kholoud’s talk, Inheriting Nakba: Four Generations of Palestinian Refugees, is a first-hand account of the key issues regarding Palestinian refugees.

This stretches from the 1947-49 Nakba (Arabic for “Catastrophe”) – when over 700,000 Palestinians were forcibly dispossessed and exiled from their homeland to facilitate the creation of the state of Israel – right up to the refugee crisis today.


Fleeing the Nakba expulsions from their homes by Israeli forces

Today there are more than five million Palestinian refugees, many who are refugees for a second or third time, all denied their international law-mandated “Right of Return” by Israel.

An IPSC spokesperson urged people to “come along to the meetings to find out more and to see what we can do to help them get home”.
