2017 Nakba Tour Comes to Boston
Announcing The 2017 North America Nakba Tour!

The Community Church of Boston, Jewish Voce for Peace Boston, The Boston Palestinian Film Festival, Black4Palestine and al-Awda Palestine Right to Return Coalition announce the

2017 North America Nakba Tour

69 Years without a Country

Stateless Palestinians from Lebanon

Khawla Hammad has been a stateless refugee in Lebanon for 69 years. At the age of sixteen, she was expelled from her village of Kabri, in Palestine. Now she is 85 years old, and and still a refugee in Lebanon, with no citizenship in any country at all. Israel expelled most of the population in 1948, and has prevented them from returning to their homes. Kabri and hundreds of other towns and villages were leveled to the ground, a crime that Palestinians call al-Nakba (the Catastrophe).

But Israel did not stop there. It repeatedly attacked Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, killing three of Khawlas children among many others. Before the Nakba, Khawlas father also lost his life as a Palestinian freedom fighter. Khawla has a message that she wants to bring to North America. So does 23-year-old Palestinian refugee, journalist and translator Amena Elashkar, whom many of you know from the 2016 Nakba Tour. She and her parents were born as stateless refugees in Lebanon and have never lived in their own country.
