Radio Free Palestine: 7am-2pm & 5-6pm on Thursday, May 13th

Remember what happened in 1948?

Tune-in for Radio Free Palestine 2010 or 90.3fm (Montreal)
7am-2pm & 5-6pm on Thursday, May 13th

Radio Free Palestine is presented by the IMEMC (in Beit Sahour) and
CKUT Radio (in Montreal) in commemoration of the 62nd anniversary of
the Palestinian Nakba or catastrophe, marked this year on May 15th,

In 1948, eighty-five percent of the Palestinians living in the areas
that became the state of Israel became refugees. More than 500
Palestinian villages were depopulated and later destroyed to prevent
the return of the refugees. Today there are a total of 7 million
Palestinian refugees, dispersed throughout the world – the largest and
longest running refugee problem yet unresolved.

62-years later, Israel continues to occupy and colonize Palestinian
land through the construction of Jewish only settlements and the Wall
in the West Bank. The Gaza Strip has been turned into one large
prison. Israel violates international law and commits ongoing war
crimes and crimes against humanity. And Palestinians abroad are the
world’s oldest refugee population, making-up more than one fourth of
all refugees.
