Palestinian Community of Bay Ridge Rally in Support of Gaza and denounce Trump's "deal of the century"

On Wednesday May 15 Within Our Lifetime will rally alongside the Palestinian community of Bay Ridge to commemorate 71 years of Palestinian resistance since the Nakba, honor the martyrs of the Great Return March and Israel's latest attack on Gaza and protest President Trump's "Deal of the Century," which he is set to announce the same day.

The protest will take place in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn --home to the largest Palestinian community in New York. There will be a press conference and rally with a list of renowned speakers from Palestinian and allied organizations to voice their support for the Palestinian people and their right to return to the lands that they were displaced from in 1948.

As Israel was dropping bombs on residential apartment buildings in Gaza, killing two pregnant women and their infant children on the first day of Ramadan on May 5, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio went on Twitter to defend Israel and vilify Palestinians in Gaza trapped inside of the world's largest open air prison. This year we are boycotting the Mayor's annual iftar once again because we refuse to let him co-opt Ramadan to whitewash his support for Israeli war crimes.

May 15, 2019 marks the 71st anniversary of the Nakba (Arabic for catastrophe), where nearly 1 million Palestinians were ethnically cleansed from their homelands in 1948 by Zionist settlers. While this event started 71 years ago, the displacement and genocide of the Palestinian people continues to this day. In Gaza, over 300 Palestinians have been murdered by Israeli occupation forces while participating in the Great Return March in the last year, and more recently, on May 3, Israel launched a new bombing offensive on the coastal strip, killing 27 Palestinians in the span of three days.
