Nakba Vigil in Rhinebeck

We had a good turnout (15 people) for the Nakba Vigil in Rhinebeck on Saturday, February 23. This was the first time we tried a Nakba vigil outside of Woodstock, and we are hoping to organize vigils in other surrounding towns. Contact us if you would like to organize one.

In 1947 and 1948, more than 700,000 Palestinians became refugees in a widespread campaign of ethnic cleansing. Today, they and their descendants number over four million. Their right to return to their homes has been affirmed by international law.

Can peace come without justice for the Palestinians?
