PALESTINIAN RIGHT OF RETURN RALLY IN NEW YORK--APRIL 7

Please join the Chicago Right of Return (Al-Awda)Coalition in mobilizing for a national demonstration in support of the Palestinian refugees' Right of Return.
There are over 4.5 million Palestinian refugees(usurped from their homes by Israel in 1948 and 1967,with most living in abject conditions in refugee camps), making it the largest refugee population in the world.

Over 10,000 Palestinians and their supporters will be in New York on April 7th in front of the United Nations to lend their voices to the refugees' demand that they must return to the homes and lands from which they were expelled, pursuant to U.N. Resolution 194 (which speaks specifically to the Palestinian Right of Return) and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The Chicago Al-Awda Coalition will be sending 3 buses to New York, leaving from the Arab Community Center (3148 W. 63rd St.) on Friday, April 6th, at 7:00 PM and returning on Sunday, April 8th, at approximately 2PM.

Tickets are now available for a $20 deposit, which will either be returned upon boarding the bus or donated to the Al-Awda Coalition to help defray the cost of the buses.

For more information, or to reserve tickets, please call Hatem Abudayyeh at 773 436 6060, ext. 223,
