The American activists condemned Israel’s current treatment of Palestinians, particularly in light of President Trump’s recent decision to move the American-Israeli embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

On one side of the group, dozens of posters of Ahed Tamimi were picketed into the ground. Tamimi is a Palestinian teenager whose angry altercation with an Israeli soldier outside her West Bank home left her with an 8 month prison sentence. Tamimi slapped an Israeli soldier after her cousin was shot with a rubber-coated steel bullet.

The event commemorated the 1948 Palestinian exodus, also known as the Nakba, where 700,000 Palestinian Arabs fled or were expelled from their homes, during the 1948 Palestine war. The activists condemned Israel’s current treatment of Palestinians, particularly in light of President Trump’s recent decision to move the American-Israeli embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
