29 November International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People

Each year 29th November is observed as International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People by the United Nations. The annual observance which took place on 29 November,  1997 was called as International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People by the general assembly.

The Resolution 181 (||) also known as the Partition Resolution was adopted by the General Assembly in the year 1947. According to this resolution, 2 different states were to be establishment in Palestine of a “Jewish State” and an “Arab State”, with Jerusalem as a corpus separatum under a special international regime. Israel is the only state that has come into being so far. The total number of  Palestinian people is now more than 8 million people. They live in the Palestinian territory occupied by Israel since 1967, which includes East Jerusalem; in Israel; in neighbouring Arab States; and in refugee camps in the particular region.

The Palestinian people haven’t yet received their rights that were defined by the General Assembly. These rights include the right to self-determination without external interference, the right to national independence and sovereignty, and the right to return to their homes and property, from which they have been displaced.

 

Hence, this day is reminds the International Community that the issue of the Palestine is still unresolved. On the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, various programs are conducted by the Governments and civil society. A special meeting is held every year at the United Nations Headquarters every year on this day.
