Palestinian Youth Movement
Dear Community Members and Comrades,
Palestinian Youth Movement – Los Angeles, Orange County, and Inland Empire (PYM LA,OC,IE), along with Arab American Activists, have called upon residents of Orange County and Southern California to stand in solidarity with Palestinians, especially Palestinians in Gaza, participating in the 46 day long Great Return March — from March 30th, Land Day, until May 15th, Al Nakba, the day of catastrophe.
The purpose of this 46 day action and march is to reclaim and demand the Palestinian right of return to the homelands, cities, towns, and villages, that Palestinians were and are continuously displaced, erased, and exiled from by the settler-colonial Zionist state, Israel.
The Zionist response, as usual, is to silence this act of liberation and determination with violence and criminalization. Since the beginning of the Great Return March, at least 18 Palestinians protesting in Gaza have become martyrs because of bullets from Zionist forces. Palestinians in the West Bank are also being attacked by Zionist forces. They have wounded over a thousand Palestinians.
We are asking the Orange County and Southern California community to stand with Palestinians in their ongoing movement and struggle of liberation and decolonization.
On April 7th, from 1pm to 4pm in Anaheim on the corner of Brookhurst St. and W. Orange Ave., bring your Palestinian flags and messages of solidarity, wear your kuffiyehs/hattas, and use your voice. We will see you there.
We will return. Palestine will be liberated.
