Read PRC Magazine: 2nd Edition of JPRS

This autumn edition of the Journal of Palestinian Refugee Studies (JPRS) was developed from the theme of our Palestine memorial week 2011. Articles included in this edition focus on the ongoing Nakba (literally catastrophe, the term Palestinians used to describe their exile in 1948). 


In its current form the Nakba manifest as a slow and silent ethnic cleansing of Palestine. As everyone Palestinian knows, the Nakba never ended, it merely took different forms. Palestinians, from the 1948 lands to the occupied territory continue to be expelled and disposed in their hundreds. Not to mention the many racist laws adopted by the Knesset to lock Palestinians into their exile.

JPRS is produced by the Palestinian Return Centre. We strive to bring news and analysis from the Middle East and around the world which impact on the plight of Palestinian refugees. We are immensely grateful to all the contributors and we welcome experts, activists and commentators to contribute to future editions.

JPRS 2nd Ed: The Liberal Democrat Friends of Palestine

The Liberal Democrat Friends of Palestine fight for the legitimate rights of the Palestinian People through the medium of international law. For far too long, these rights have been ignored. Not only have the Palestinians suffered injustice as a people and as individuals, something that cries out to Heaven for recognition and compassion, but this denial of justice, this culture of denial that lies behind it, is a source of instability in our world that we cannot afford.
