With the commemoration of 61 years of the establishment of the state of Israel and the consequent ‘disaster’ to the Palestinian people, the group initiated a campaign whose purpose was to raise awareness on the issue of the Nakba among Jaffa residents. They gathered materials on the issue: statistic information, names of destroyed villages, Palestinian poetry and more. The materials were exposed in a public exhibition on a main artery in Jaffa. Pedestrians passed through the exhibition, looked at the materials, discussed with the members of the group and went away with information in hand. The group also did a public screening of a documentary movie on the Nakba in a Palestinian neighborhood of Jaffa.
