Invite your friends and RSVP on the Facebook event page.

Our friends at the Canada Palestine Cultural Association are hosting a special event to commemorate the Day of the Land, which remembers the events of March 30, 1976, when Palestinian citizens of Israel protested against a renewed effort by the state of Israel to expropriate land from the nation’s marginalized population. Israeli police charged the demonstrators and killed six. Every year on March 30, Palestinians within Israel commemorate Land Day in recognition of their past and present struggle to maintain their ancestral lands in the face of settler-colonization.

Speakers include Dr. Ghada Ageel and Mahdi Qasqas, and musical and poetry performances by local Palestinian artists.

This is a free event and open to the public.
