Video: 'They stole my land, my dreams, my childhood,' Nakba Day march told

May 13, 2023

Hundreds rallied and marched in Sydney, Gadigal land, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Al Nakba (the catastrophe) in 1948 when Zionist terrorist gangs carried out massacres, ethnic cleansing and seized Palestinian land to create the state of Israel.

This led to thousands of deaths, the displacement of 750,000 Palestinians and the land theft of 78% of historic Palestine.

The rally heard an eyewitness account of Fouad Charida, a Nakba survivor.

"The Zionists did not only steal my land, they stole my dreams and my childhood," he said.
