Athens: From al-Kabri to Lebanon: Voices of the Nakba

December 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

$10

Supported and facilitated by The Free Palestine Movement, International Solidarity Movement – Northern California, the al-Awda Palestine Right to Return Coalition, and Black4Palestine, we are proud to bring the 2017 Nakba Tour to the University of Georgia on December 5th, 2017 @ 7:00pm in the MLC, rm. 148.

Join us as we host 84 yr. old Palestinian refugee Khawla Hammad (Umm Mousa) who will recount her experiences as a victim of the Nakba, or “The Catastrophe,” having been displaced at the young age of 16 from her village of al-Kabri in the Galilee.

Today, she is a reminder of the ethnic cleansing of Palestine, having resided for 7 decades in Lebanon after her village was leveled, meant to be forgotten, by Zionists. She, however, remembers, and continues to speak on the sumud (steadfastness) of both her and her people as they continue to strive for liberation in the face of settler-colonialism.

In addition, we will be joined by Amena al-Ashkar, a 23 yr. old Palestinian refugee working as a journalist and translator, whose great-grandparents were displaced in 1948. She herself has resided in refugee camps all her life.

Tickets are NOW AVAILABLE for $10 online (tinyurl.com/voicesofthenakba) and at the Tate Business Office until December 4th, although they will increase in price to $12 on November 28th (will also available at the door). Food will be provided.

Please note that the event is open to students, faculty, and community members alike– feel free to invite whomever you’d like!

In Solidarity,
