BNC Statement

Colonial hypocrisy is killing Palestinians. On the 74th anniversary of the Nakba, we condemn once again the Western indifference to Palestinians, which enables Israel's impunity, directly contributing to our ongoing Nakba. We reiterate our call for meaningful solidarity with Palestinians facing ethnic cleansing, massacres, colonial dispossession and apartheid.

Today, on May 15th, we mark the 74th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba (catastrophe). During the Nakba, between 750,000 and 1,000,000 Indigenous Palestinians were driven out of their homes and ethnically cleansed at the hands of Zionist militias and, later, the Israeli army to establish the state of Israel as a Jewish supremacist settler-colony.
