LONDON, (PIC)– The Palestinian Forum in Britain has announced completion of logistical and administrative arrangements ahead of Palestine Day scheduled for July 2 and 3 in the capital London and the second largest city Manchester.

The major annual gathering comes to mark Nakba and Naksa Days, in memory of the 1948 and 1967 Zionist occupations of the Palestinian territories, and the movement of change for freedom across the Arab world, said PFB public relations official Zahir Beirawi. It also comes to confirm the exiled Palestinians’ commitment to their right to the Palestinian territories.

Palestine Day 2011 will include cultural and artistic functions and lectures, the most prominent being those by Raed Salah, leader of the Islamic Movement in 1948-occupied Palestine, and Dr. Ahmed Nofel from Jordan.

The day marks the largest gathering of Palestinians and pro-Palestinians in the UK, as more than a thousand attend annually.
