ICJP statement on International Day of Solidarity with Palestinian people

The 29th of November marks the anniversary of the International Day of Solidarity with the People of Palestine. The General Assembly called for the observance of this day of Solidarity in 1977 in (resolution 32/40 B). On the same day in 1947, the General Assembly adopted the resolution on the partition of Palestine (resolution 181 (II)). 

Today, 75 years on from the Nakba, the Palestinian people continue to face oppression and injustice around the world. The current onslaught on Gaza has killed more than 15,000 Palestinians including at least 6,150 children, and an additional 232 were killed in the West Bank including 61 children. 

The International community has a moral, ethical, and legal duty to uphold the rights of the Palestinian people and hold accountable those complicit in their oppression and murder. The International Centre of Justice for Palestinians intends to advocate for the implementation of International Law, for accountability, and for equality for all until justice is served for the people of Palestine.
