hundreds of Palestinians, Arabs and pro-Palestinian Swedes marked Monday, May 15, 2023, the 75th anniversary of the Nakba (the mass ethnic cleansing of Palestinians by Israeli gangs in 1948) in many events in the Swedish city of Malmö.
The Arab Group of the Left Party has organized a day of solidarity with Palestine, commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Nakba, during which the participants raised Palestine flags and banners calling for the end of the Israeli occupation of Palestine.
Imtithal, an activist in the Left Party and a member of the municipal council of Malmö, emphasized the Palestinians’ right to their homeland and the Swedish full solidarity with the Palestinian people.
During a speech by the Swedish Left Party, Mattis called on the Swedish government to put pressure on the Israeli occupation to recognize Palestinian national rights, including the establishment of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital and the return of Palestinian refugees to their homelands as stipulated in international resolutions.
He stressed that the party still remains with the Palestinian right, calling for improving cooperation relations that bring the party together with the Palestinian people.
Nakba (catastrophe) refers to the May 1948 events, during which Israeli gangs murdered 15,000 Palestinians in many massacres throughout Palestine.
During the Nakba, the zionist gangs forcibly expelled 750,000 Palestinians from their homeland, who have been living in the diaspora until today.
