Saturday 13 May is the international day of action marking the 75th anniversary of the Nakba (“catastrophe” in Arabic) which marks the ethnic cleansing of more than 700,000 Palestinians from their land and homes by Israeli militias in 1948. The Nakba continues today with ethnic cleansing, house demolitions and land theft across Palestine.

Marches and demonstrations will be held across the world and here in Aotearoa New Zealand, because we are close to the international dateline, we will be the first country to be taking action.

(Note: Nakba Day is actually on the Monday but to give more people the chance to take part it is being remembered around the world on Saturday 13 May)

Walled off – Film screening in Auckland for Nakba Day

Produced by Anwar Hadid, Roger Waters, Kweku Mandela, and Immortal Technique and directed by Vin Arfuso, Walled Off Hotel is a guesthouse established by the world-famous artist Banksy in the Palestinian city of Bethlehem.

The film takes an intimate look at the lives of Palestinians living under Israeli occupation, and highlights the importance of creative resistance as a form of protest.

In telling the stories of individual Palestinians, the documentary explores the ways in which media coverage of the conflict perpetuates an inaccurate and biased narrative.

Through interviews with activists, politicians, and everyday citizens, the film offers an often unseen perspective on the Palestinian struggle for freedom.

The film ultimately seeks to challenge the mainstream media narrative of the occupation, and to bring to light the realities of life under military.
