The Interfaith Community for Palestinian Rights, Austin, TX says
Nakba means "Catastrophe" in Arabic. It refers to the destruction of Palestinian society in 1948 when more than 800,000 Palestinians were displaced and more than 430 villages razed in the process of creating Israel. Palestinian refugees and their descendants now number more than 8 million and are still waiting to return to their homes; an inalienable human right as per international law.

THE LAND SPEAKS ARABIC shines a spotlight on the ethnic cleansing of Palestine by the Zionist movement and uses archival footage to show that the expulsion of the indigenous Arab population from Palestine was far from an accidental result of the 1948 war.

In this documentary the late 19th century birth of Zionism—and its repercussions for Palestinians—is detailed with original source documents, Zionist leaders’ quotations, rare archival footage, testimonies of witnesses and interviews with historians. All help to illustrate that the expulsion of the indigenous Arab population from Palestine was far from an accidental result of the 1948 war. This award-winning film shines a spotlight on the ethnic cleansing of Palestine by the Zionist movement.

Open to the public; Free admission.
Co-sponsored by the P&SC Committee of the Friends Meeting of Austin.
