On May 14, 2019 Hammam Farah, a board member of the Palestine House in Mississauga, ON posted the following statement:

[Originally in English] Join us at the Toronto protest to commemorate the 71st Nakba, which will take place on Saturday, May 18 from 2-6 p.m. at Yonge-Dundas Square.

[Originally in Arabic] The Palestinian house is pleased to participate in a protest in Toronto in commemoration of the 18st Nakba [catastrophe] that will take place on Saturday May 18th [2019] from 2-6 pm at Yonge and Dundas Square.

Join us in Toronto to show solidarity with our Palestinian people in commemoration of the Nakba. Let us meet and show the strength of our presence and solidarity.

The Nakba day was a disastrous day that witnessed the beginning of the ethnic cleansing accompanied by violence and colonization of Palestine in 1948, which was based on the racist belief that only Jews belong to Palestine.

Since 71 years ago, meaning from the Nakba to this day, the Israeli army and the Israeli government have continued the theft of the land, killing and displacement of Palestinians, the occupation of Palestinian territories and the implementation of the apartheid regime.

We invite you to come out and join the protest on May 18th. Respecting us by attending the protest will emphasize the strength of the impact of our presence in solidarity and in support of our Palestinian people who have never stopped resisting/fighting the oppressive Israeli occupation and its colonial racist violence. Join us in our support for the right of return of the Palestinian refugees and demand to boycott the apartheid regime and [to impose] sanctions on the Israeli occupation state.
