As part of the Palestinian Return Centre’s ‘The Shared Struggle: Ireland & Palestine’ tour, PRC with Gael Force Art dropped a 100-metre flag onto Belfast’s infamous Black Mountain to commemorate the upcoming anniversary of Land Day. The flag drop took place on Saturday 26th March 2022, and the flag was visible from all around Belfast.
Land Day commemorates the death of six Palestinians and the injuring of 70 Palestinians by Israeli gunfire in Nazareth in 1976, during protests against Israeli land expropriation. Land Day also serves to remind the world of the continued injustice of Israel’s historical and ongoing illegal expropriation of Palestinian land.
The Palestinian Return Centre is hosting ‘The Shared Struggle: Ireland & Palestine’ to commemorate both the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, the upcoming anniversary of Land Day and to honour the long standing solidarity between the Irish and Palestinian people.
