Washington, D.C. Nakba March: ‘We want to defeat imperialism by Intifada’

NEWSRAEL: Notice how the narrative is changing. No longer “no crimes were committed by Hamas on 10/7”, but rather “This is not about a ceasefire or civil rights.”

In a May 18, 2024 D.C. march on the National Mall commemorating the Nakba, speakers stated that they are not interested in a ceasefire but the end to the State of Israel.

They chanted: “We don’t want no two states… We’re taking back ’48!” An organizer with Mayrland2Palestine said that Zionism is a “sickness.”

She continued to say that the Palestinian struggle is not a movement for a ceasefire or civil rights, nor is it due to a humanitarian crisis, but rather it is to defeat imperialism.

The speaker said that imperialism has never been defeated by peace talks and that it can all be defeated by Intifada. She then led the crowd in a song about a return to Jerusalem, Haifa, Jaffa, Acre, Safed, Lod, and Ramla.
