November 2nd, Balfour Day, holds a very special significance for Palestinian people.

In 2020 Real Media interviewed two young Palestinians studying in the UK who give some background around the 1917 Balfour Declaration and the way it paved the way to the Nakba or ‘Great Catastrophe’ of 1948 when around 750000 Palestinians were forced from their homeland.

Nakba is not just a historical point in time, because Palestinians remain stateless to this day.

As well as highlighting the roots of the tragedy and genocide unfolding right now, the interviews reminds us of the parallels we can draw in multiple struggles for freedom and justice.
