In the week of the 72nd anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba, during the coronavirus outbreak, as people worldwide are under lockdown, many are not able to stay at home. Refugees, migrants and those struggling with housing issues do not have access to homes, even as governments order them to stay home.
The panelists will analyze the connections between the Palestinian struggle to end the ongoing Nakba and the struggles of millions of refugees, migrants and those struggling for adequate housing worldwide, particularly during the pandemic. They will discuss rights that are the key to justice, as well as calls to action.
The conversation will be in English.
