More than 100 people joined APAN as we celebrated Palestine National Day 2021 both online and offline, with a small covid-safe gathering in Melbourne’s Federation Square. Senator Lidia Thorpe was the first key speaker and discussed the links between Palestinian and Aboriginal Australian struggles for self-determination, followed by several speeches and readings from Palestinians in Australia. The event culminated with the raising of the Palestinian flag, and a farewell from dabke performers celebrating their traditional dance.
