In May of this year Palestinians and their supporters will be commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Nakba, the process of ethnic cleansing, colonisation and dispossession that saw over 750,000 Palestinians driven into exile and more than 500 towns and villages wiped from the map.

We mark the Nakba (catastrophe) not just as a historical event but as a continuing process of oppression enacted over the past 75 years though ongoing colonisation of land, enforcement of apartheid and military occupation.  The Palestinian people need our solidarity now more than ever.

UNISON has a long-standing affiliation with the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign (PSC). Join the protest march and rally for Palestine taking place online or in person as listed:
