The mass displacement and ethnic cleansing that accompanied the creation of apartheid Israel 75 years ago is known as the Nakba - or ‘catastrophe’. Since then, Palestinians in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, in refugee camps and in exile have continued to resist their ongoing oppression at the hands of a settler-colonial state and its vigilante paramilitaries. This session will explore what that resistance has looked like over the past 75 years - and look towards the future that resistance has been fighting for.
