Join Students for Justice in Palestine at UGA on April 7th in Memorial Hall Ballroom at 6:30pm for our annual Palestinian Culture Night! We will be offering a variety of activities and performances, including musical performances, dabke dancing, spoken word poetry, henna, book and art stands, calligraphy, speakers and more! And make sure to come hungry, because we will be serving middle-eastern food from multiple restaurants in Athens/Atlanta.

On May 15th, 2018, Palestinians around the world will commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Nakba, the “Day of Catastrophe,” on which the State of Israel was established atop their homeland following the ethnic cleansing of more than 750,000 from their homes and the destruction of over 500 Palestinian villages. For this reason, SJP at UGA is proud to announce that our annual Palestinian culture night will serve to “Remember the Nakba.” This year marks nearly a century of the Palestinian struggle for self-determination and recognition of their innate humanity. As we celebrate Palestinian culture, we must also stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people themselves, whose culture of resilience we hope to showcase on this night.

This event is not just for students so please feel free to invite friends, family members, professors, and whoever else from the community that would be interested in immersing themselves in the resistance of the Palestinian people that is their very culture. Any updates about the event will be posted on the event page as the date approaches.

Ticket prices for the event are $5 for students, $7 for non students, and $7 at the door. Information about purchasing tickets at the Tate box office will be posted soon, but if you’d like to purchase your tickets now, you can Venmo @Raphael-Eissa with the appropriate amount for student/non-student, and include your first and last name in the description.

We hope to see you there!

In Solidarity,
Students for Justice in Palestine
