On Saturday 29 November activists from SFP gathered in Nablus’s Martyrs Square to honour the international solidarity activists that have stood in solidarity with the Palestinian people over the years, and particularly those that have been murdered by Apartheid Israel: Rachel Corrie; Tom Hurndall; and Vittorio Arrigoni.
2014 was designated the year of solidarity with the Palestinian people by the UN and 29 November marks 37 years since Resolution 181, calling for two States. Activists honoured the brave work of international solidarity activists over the years, particularly the work for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) and the work towards European States recognising the State of Palestine.
As activities took place across the world for Palestine, activists in SFP and Nablus praised international efforts and also called for a continuation and escalation of those efforts, following the failure of Resolution 181 to establish an independent Palestinian State and secure the right of return for refugees. Activists called for a free, democractic Palestine from the river to the sea.
