16th and Valencia | San Francisco, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
As we approach the anniversary of the Nakba, the colonization of Palestine, no where is ongoing Israeli settler-colonialism more clear today than in the heart of Jerusalem, Palestine’s capitol: in the village of Sheikh Jarrah, in Silwan, in Batan Al Hawa.
This past week, Palestinians in Jerusalem have experienced some of the worst violence in recent history. On the last Friday of Ramadan, Israeli forces stormed the Al-Aqsa mosque and fired tear gas and live ammunition at the worshipers. And in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in east Jerusalem, Palestinians continue to resist violent and illegal attempts to forcibly expel them from their homes. Additionally, Gaza is now under siege as the death toll rises. All of this is funded by US tax dollars.
