The Nakba Tour is not only an educational experience but an invitation to take action. There are several quick actions that you can take today to help stop the ongoing Nakba and amplify the voices of millions of dispossessed and displaced Palestinians seeking freedom and return.
1. Donate to keep the Nakba Tour going. This important educational resource is self-funded. Without grants or other funding, grassroots support is critical to make sure voices like Umm Mousa’s and Amena’s can reach people throughout North America. Donate here: http://freepalestinemovement.org/donate-2/
2. The continuing Nakba also involves attacks on Palestinian existence, Palestinian narrative and even Palestinian scholarship. Dr. Rabab Abdulhadi, a distinguished scholar and the Director of the Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diasporas program at San Francisco State University (SFSU) is facing a groundless federal lawsuit filed by right-wing Zionist organizations as a form of “lawfare” against Palestinian scholarship. Professor Abdulhadi needs our support! Follow the Facebook page for her defense campaign: https://facebook.com/DefendProfAbdulhadi or support her legal defense: https://www.launchgood.com/project/professor_rabab_abdulhadis_legal_fund#/
3. Keep up the pressure on Congress. Tell your representatives to stop U.S. aid to Israel now. Call your representative’s office and let them know that you think that U.S. aid should stop going to dispossess and oppress Palestinians, including millions of refugees denied their right to return. Find contact information for your member of Congress here: https://www.contactingcongress.org/
4. Build the boycott of Israel – including academic, cultural, economic and military boycotts. The Israeli state doesn’t accomplish its ongoing Nakba alone; the support of complicit governments and corporations is critical. By joining boycott campaigns, people of conscience can provide a material boost to Palestinians’ struggle for return and liberation.
5. Help support education for Palestinian refugees in Lebanon. The Learning for the Empowerment and Advancement of Palestinians (LEAP) Program works closely with Palestinian/Lebanese community centers in Lebanon. The LEAP Program is an important opportunity for internationals to not only meet with Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, but to participate in an important educational program.
