|73 years on, the Palestinian Nakba continues while the people’s resistance only grows stronger. Key Israeli and international human rights organizations have declared Israel an apartheid state, a fact that Palestinians have known and lived through since 1948.
Now more than ever, Israel has been exposed as a brutal settler-colonial state. The labour movement in Canada has an important role to play in supporting Palestinian resistance and standing in solidarity with workers and people directly affected.
