We invite you to commemorate 60 years of struggle and resistance on 
the anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba, Arabic for "catastrophe" 
and marks the expulsion, dispossession and ethnic cleansing of the 
Palestinian people.
Bring the family, and join us for a special day of resistance music, 
cultural and youth programs, Nakba tent/art, Dabka, local solidarity 
groups and more! Meet survivors from 1948, and learn about the 
tragedy, while listening to Palestinian and Native American elders 
recount their experiences.  Special children's area with games.
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!!!
