Jerusalem24 – Today, Sunday, 29 November marks the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, which the United Nations General Assembly has called to commemorate every year since 1977.
Also today, in 1947, the General Assembly adopted the Resolution on the Partition of Palestine (Resolution 181).
The endorsement of the Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people came in accordance with the mandates delegated by the General Assembly in its resolutions 32/40 B of December 2, 1977, 34/65 D of December 12, 1979, and subsequent resolutions on the “Question of Palestine.”
This day usually provides an opportunity for the international community to focus its attention on the fact that the Question of Palestine has not yet been resolved, and that the Palestinian people have not yet attained their inalienable rights as defined by the General Assembly.
These rights are: the right to self-determination without outside interference, the right to national independence and sovereignty, and the right of Palestinians to return to their homes and properties from which they were expelled.
In response to a call from the United Nations, various activities are undertaken annually by governments and civil society to mark the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.
On Saturday evening, activists launched a media campaign under the title “Palestine is my cause”; Solidarity and support for the Palestinian cause.
The campaign called on all activists to interact and tweet through their accounts on the social networking sites on the hashtag “# PalestineMyCause”.
Activists and communication leaders circulated tweets in solidarity with the Palestinian cause and rejecting normalization with the Israeli occupation.
It is decided that the Palestinian resistance factions in Gaza will organize a national stand on this day in front of the Legislative Council headquarters.
As the @UN turns 75, the question of Palestine remains distressingly unresolved.
