A basic human right?

 November 29, 1947, the day of the grave injustice of partitioning Palestine, has been marked by the UN as the day of Solidarity with the Palestinians.

We are indeed grateful for the UN for naming not only a day but a whole year of solidarity with the Palestinians, sixty five years after the Nakba – the dispossession of the Palestinians. With the ongoing dispossession of the Palestinians after the occupation of the rest of Palestine in 1967, and the conditions of the Palestinian refugees in the neighboring countries, we hope that the United Nations will translate its solidarity into action and grant us our inalienable rights as a reality on the ground.
