PHROC Position Paper on the Current Funding Crisis of UNRWA, International Responsibility and a Framework of Short and Long-term International Interventions Necessary for Maintaining the Functioning of UNRWA, and Ensuring Fundamental Rights of Palestine Refugees
· Mass demonstrations planned across Palestine for 15 May to commemorate sixty years of exile and dispossession.
· Cultural and sporting events, talks and testimonials, mass demonstrations in the cities, towns and refugee camps from 8 – 15 May.
· Solidarity actions across the globe to demand the restoration of Palestinian rights.
15 May is Nakba Day, commemorating the expulsion of 750,000 Palestinians expelled from their country in 1948.
“After 6 decades of forced displacement, dispossession, suffering and bloody aggression against the Palestinian people the Nakba continues. A new and even more tragic and threatening chapter has now started: the apartheid regime that the occupation state tries to force upon our people and through which it aims to expel those Palestinians still steadfast on our land to annihilate our struggle.”
