Nakba Day Coming to Tel Aviv U.

Tel Aviv University’s dean of students recently approved a ceremony to commemorate Nakba Day, to take place on campus on Monday, May 14th.

Nakba is the Arabic word for catastrophe, and for Israeli Arabs, Nakba day marks the anniversary of the evens of 1948. In January, the High Court of Justice upheld the controversial Nakba Law passed by the Knesset in March, which fines bodies who openly reject Israel as a Jewish state or mark the Israel’s Independence Day as a day of mourning.

The ceremony was set to be held next Monday in the plaza adjacent to the “Naftali” social sciences building.

On Wednesday, University security services decided that because of a “possibility of disturbances,” the event will instead be held at “Antine Square,” located near the entrance to the University.
