Deir Yassin Remembered – PLEASE CIRCULATE

 DateFriday, April 5, 2013 at 1:19PM AuthorGilad Atzmon

Introduction by GA: Once again Zionist join forces with their ideological twins, the Anti Zionist Zionists (AZZ). I have learned today that due to pressure, Deir Yassin Remembered’s (DYR) commemoration in Glasgow was cancelled. In spite of the difficulties Mr Abdallah Eid, a survivor of the Deir Yassin, will still commemorate Deir Yassin as planned and I urge you to join him at the event.


PLEASE CIRCULATE
As you will see, the event in Glasgow (see below) to mark the 25th anniversary of the consecration of the first ever Deir Yassin memorial outside Palestine has been cancelled.
Of course, this is a pity but Mr Abdallah Eid a survivor of the Deir Yassin massacre will still commemorate Deir Yassin as planned at the Deir Yassin memorial as below.
Anyone who wishes to join him will be most welcome.

12 noon Sunday 7 April 2013
@ the Commemorative Plaque,
Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum
Glasgow

Dear Friend
25th anniversary of the laying of the Commemorative Plaque and 65th anniversary of the massacre


Deir Yassin Remembered
12 noon Sunday 7 April 2013
@ the Commemorative Plaque,
Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum
Glasgow
Speakers include:
Abdallah Eid, Deir Yassin survivor
Lord Provost of Glasgow Cllr Sadie Docherty
Wael Shawish (Scottish Friends of Palestine)
Mike Kirby (Scottish Secretary UNISON)

Followed by a Reception at 1pm at the STUC, 333 Woodlands Rd., Glasgow.

You are invited to join the Memorial Gathering at the plaque at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum (west side) to commemorate the massacre of Palestinians which took place at Deir Yassin, Jerusalem, on 9 April 1948.

The murder of over 100 Palestinians by the Urgun (headed by Menachem Begin) and Stern gangs with the assistance of an elite unit from the Haganah, led to the flight of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their homes, an event known as al-Nakba, “the Catastrophe”. The aim of the “Deir Yassin Remembered” campaign is to erect a memorial on the site of the massacre and at the same time raise the plight of the Palestinian people. For more information about the campaign visit http://www.deiryassinremembered.org/

In 1988, on the fortieth anniversary of the massacre, a plaque was laid and a tree planted in the grounds of Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum by the then Lord Provost of Glasgow, Robert Gray. This year is the 25th anniversary of the laying of the plaque
We hope you will be able to join us at the Memorial Gatherin
g and thereafter at the Reception.
Yours sincerely

Brian Filling
DYR Coordinator (Scotland)
