59 years...

... it has been, and yet, here we are fighting for what is rightfully ours. Today marks the 59th anniversary of the Palestinian "nakbeh" or exodus. Today 59 years ago, millions of us became refugees, stateless, with nothing but a hope and a memory -for a few some- to cling on to. We were driven out of our homes, lands and towns. We were stripped of our dignity and of our identity.

Yet, here we are, struggling, fighting, refusing, objecting against what has happened to us.

We will win eventually, we shall return one day.
