Event marking the Nakba teaches Palestinian children they are refugees, and that “this activity was meant to emphasize our right to return”

Headline: "Children of the Aqabat Jaber refugee camp marked the 70th anniversary of the Nakba"

"The Democratic Association of Young People organized an activity at the Aqabat Jaber refugee camp to mark the 70th anniversary of the Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) and its ramifications for our people, with the participation of dozens of children from the camp and groups of Return Scouts.
Democratic Front [for the Liberation of Palestine] Central Committee member Salah Al-Samhouri, leaders of the Democratic Association of Young People Muhannad Abu Rahma, Samah Wahdan, Manar Abu Na'ma, and Wiam Al-Samhouri, and guide Zidan Suleiman Abu Roumi from the Jericho and Jordan Valley Scout Commission were present at the activity.
Democratic Front Central Committee member Salah Al-Samhouri emphasized that this activity was meant to emphasize our right to return to the houses from which our grandparents were expelled 70 years ago, and indeed our children are now emphasizing that they have not forgotten and will not forget their right of return."
