International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People | United Nations

Pursuant to General Assembly resolution 32/40 B of 2 December 1977, the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People is observed annually on or around 29 November, solemnly commemorating the adoption by the Assembly, on 29 November 1947, of resolution 181 (II), which provided for the partition of Palestine into two States. The observance is held at United Nations Headquarters, the United Nations Offices at Geneva and Vienna and elsewhere. The event includes special meetings at which statements on the question of Palestine are made by high-level officials of the United Nations and intergovernmental organizations and representatives of civil society. The observance also includes cultural events. At other locations, various activities are organized on the occasion of Solidarity Day by governmental bodies and CSOs in cooperation with United Nations information centres around the world. It is also traditionally the day that the United Nations General Assembly undertakes its annual debate on the question of Palestine.

As customary, in accordance with General Assembly resolution 32/40 B of 2 December 1977, the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People (Solidarity Day) will be marked by the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People (CEIRPP) in a Special Meeting where UN Members States express their solidarity with the Palestinian people, through messages by Heads of States and Government. Similar events are held at UNOG, UNON, UNOV and UNICs around the world.

This year, the Special Meeting will be held in person on 29 and 30  November from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (New York time) and will be livestreamed on UN WebTV.

The International Day of Solidarity provides an opportunity for the international community to focus its attention on the fact that the question of Palestine remains unresolved and that the Palestinian people are yet to attain their inalienable rights as defined by the General Assembly, namely, the right to self-determination, the right to national independence and sovereignty and the right to return.

The Special Meeting will be presided by the Chair of the Committee, Ambassador Cheikh Niang, who will deliver opening statement, followed by remarks by the President of the General Assembly, the President of the Security Council, and by the Secretary-General, delivered by his Chef de Cabinet. The Permanent Observer of the State of Palestine will deliver a statement on behalf of Mahmoud Abbas, President of the State of Palestine. Mr. Shawan Jabarin, General Director of Al-Haq, a Palestinian human rights organization, will also share his remarks.

During the event, a video will be screened, which is part of a virtual exhibit titled “Portraits of Palestine,” to be launched online the same day and consisting of videos depicting individual Palestinians’ stories of resilience. The Permanent Observer for the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation and the Chair of the Special Committee to Investigate Israeli Practices Affecting the Human Rights of the Palestinian People and Other Arabs of the Occupied Territories, as well as representatives of other intergovernmental organizations will deliver statements in the second part of the Meeting.

 



 Back from the Brink: Bringing Communities Together to Abolish Nuclear Weapons 

 Thursday, December 1, 7 PM CT 

Register Today

We know all too well how real the threat of nuclear war is at this very moment. And how important it is for we the people to have a voice and to demand Washington decision makers make this the front burner priority it needs to be. At the Open House you’ll learn about Back from the Brink's 2022 accomplishments and our:

  • Hub Model: Our national network of Back from the Brink organizing hubs is growing. Is there one near you? If not, we can help you start one!
  • Organizational Partnerships: BftB is partnering with organizations around the US and we need your help to get more organizations, including those in your community, invested in the campaign and signed on as endorsers or Coalition Partners.
  • Current Projects: We are working with a broad cross section of faith leaders and organizations and passing BftB resolutions in more cities, towns, and states.
  • Upcoming Milestones: The 2nd anniversary of the entry-into-force of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) is coming up on January 22nd and we are brainstorming ways to celebrate and highlight this anniversary.
  • Congressional Advocacy: We are pushing to get BftB/nuclear abolition resolutions introduced early in 2023 in both the U.S. House and Senate. Your members of Congress could be crucial.
To encourage dialogue and community, this 75 minute Open House will include time for break-out sessions with different focuses depending on your interest and whether you are attending as an individual or a representative of an endorsing or interested organization. We’ll hear from local BftB activists who will highlight community success stories, as well as the challenges they have faced organizing locally.

This is our moment. It’s go time for nuclear disarmament. Vladimir Putin’s nuclear saber rattling has been a stark reminder of what’s at stake and how perilous a moment we are in. It’s up to us to build the power needed and chart a new path forward.

STOP THE MONEY PIPELINE

One year later, however, US banks are actually undermining progress on climate commitments and continuing business-as-usual with funding fossil fuels and deforestation. Our partner, Rainforest Action Network recently released this report showing how, since the Paris Agreement was adopted, the big six US banks have provided $445 billion to the top 100 companies expanding fossil fuel infrastructure.  

Join us and send a message to top US banks asking “Where are you?” on the climate fight. It’s now or never – no more greenwashing and weak net zero pledges. We need real action.

In a recent report, the Sierra Club analyzed the climate policies of the top six US banks: JPMorgan Chase, Citibank, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Morgan Stanley, and Goldman Sachs. They’re not even meeting the bare minimums here – significantly more work needs to be done by every US bank in order to align with the goals of the Paris Agreement.

Join us and send a message to these six banks that we will call out their floundering climate commitments every day of the year. Any more resistance to a science-based climate strategy is unacceptable

SANCTIONS: A Wrecking Ball in a Global Economy

 

Join a discussion of the latest developments in key regions of the world with several authors of the new anthology: SANCTIONS: A Wrecking Ball in a Global Economy

Intensifying US sanctions, imposed on a third of humanity, are sending shock waves through the world economy. Now this brutal form of economic warfare on civilian populations is being contested. US dollar dominance is being challenged as the currency of global trade. Sanctions have boomeranged back on the US and EU countries with inflation, supply chain shortages, and a looming recession causing hardship at home. But by far the greatest burden is borne by 40+ sanctioned countries. The US response is doubling down on harsher sanctions. What are the implications?

A Discussion with :

  • Ajamu Baraka - Black Alliance for Peace
  • Erica Jung - Nodutdol Korean Community Development
  • Carlos Martinez - International Manifesto Group
  • Lee Siu Hin - China-US Solidarity Network

International Human Rights Day Event Partnership

Location to be announced, 4-7 pm on December 10.

We would like to invite you to join with the newly formed Milwaukee Anti-war Committee on commemorating December 10, a day recognized around the world as International Human Rights Day. We believe in order to do that the right way we need to unite many different local organizations that focus on a variety of issues.

The violation of human rights that people in this country suffer are often shared in the experiences of people in other places around the world. For example, Black people struggling here in the U.S. against injustices visited upon them at the hands of the police share a common cause with the Palestinian people who fight every day against the occupation of their homes and the murder of their children at the hands of Israeli Defense Forces who often instruct U.S. police in methods and tactics.

The human rights violations that are suffered by people in other countries that we don’t deal with in the United States are often a result of policies put in place by people who claim to represent our interests. For example, the harsh government repression of militant trade unionists in the Philippines is intricately linked to the support of that government and their military by U.S. politicians.

When we begin to recognize these general conditions, we can begin to trace the issues we face to their roots. We can see that so much of what ails people everywhere can be directly or indirectly attributed to a handful of unfathomably rich people, or to the pawns they employ to achieve their goals, like crooked politicians and militarized police forces. Understanding this allows us to identify that the package delivery car driver struggling with volume because their company won’t hire the appropriate number of workers here in Milwaukee has a lot more in common with the Venezuelan mother in Caracas who has to stretch what’s in the cabinet to feed her family because the U.S. sanctions have crippled the country’s ability to feed its people to the fullest.

To this end, we are inviting organizations from the movements against racist policing, for student rights on campus, for reproductive justice, for immigrants rights, for LGBTQ rights, for climate justice, for peace and against war, and for workers rights to join us. We hope this commemoration will become a tradition in the city of Milwaukee for many years to come that unites all these important movements as we move toward the common goal of creating a world where nations have a right to determine their own destinies and people are able to live full and meaningful lives, free of violence and oppression.

In solidarity,

Members of the Milwaukee Anti-War Committee

The Israeli Occupation Forces bombed Gaza last week. Join the global call on the U.S. to stop funding the ethnic cleansing of Palestine!

Dear President Biden Members of the U.S. Congress,

The events that transpired in Gaza last week make one thing clear: US taxpayer dollars that go to Israel in the form of $3.8 billion in military “aid” are being used to further harm and kill Palestinians. We, the undersigned, are demanding that the United States stops funding Israeli war crimes and human rights abuses and halt all weapons sales to the occupation. 

Your administration insists that it cares deeply about human rights around the globe, yet you refuse to hold Israeli occupation accountable for its daily human rights abuses. 

The slaughter and daily assault on Palestinian human rights being carried out by Israel is an unacceptable use of US taxpayer dollars. We demand an end to U.S. collaboration in the ethnic cleansing of Palestine. 

US Members of Congress like Representatives Betty McCollum, Chuy Garcia, Marie Newman, Rashida Tlaib and several others have called for the conditioning of aid to Israel. The concept of revoking or halting aid is not new, and it is supported by many lawmakers and their constituents. We call on Congress to suspend all aid and block any weapons sale that gets announced to the occupation. 

US taxpayers pay Israel over 10 million dollars a day, and Israel uses that money to inflict violence all over Palestine. We call you to halt this “aid” and demand that Israel stop its assault on Gaza, its evictions in East Jerusalem, and its attacks on Al-Aqsa. We demand that not one more tax payer dollar gets sent to fund apartheid and anti-Palestinian violence. We look forward to seeing how you will carry out these demands.

Peace Action WI Joins U.S. National Call in Support of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear WeaponsSign the Statement on the Existential Threat of Nuclear Weapons & Treaty  Prohibition by June 7 | Wisconsin Network for Peace and Justice The campaign - ICAN

In the face of widespread concern about the threat of nuclear weapons, World BEYOND War joins with organizations and individuals across the country in releasing the following statement:

STATEMENT ON THE EXISTENTIAL THREAT OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS
AND ON THE TREATY ON THE PROHIBITION OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS

The power to initiate a global apocalypse lies in the hands of the leaders of nine nations. As 122 nations of the world indicated when they adopted the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in July, 2017, this is unacceptable.

As concerns about the threat of nuclear weapons re-enter the public consciousness, it is important to know that humankind is not without an answer to the nuclear threat. The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, which entered into force on January 22, 2021, provides a clear pathway to the elimination of the nuclear threat.

We call on all nuclear armed states to take immediate steps to:

  • engage the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons,
  • attend the First Meeting of States Parties, and
  • sign, ratify and implement the Treaty.

We also call on the U.S. media to recognize the existence of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and to include the Treaty in discussions, articles, and editorials regarding the nuclear threat and methods available to address it.

====

The Statement has been endorsed by Peace Action WI and organizations representing hundreds of thousands of people in the United States as well as by a growing list of individuals. A list of signatories can be found at nuclearbantreaty.org.

Peace Action WI also encourages support for this  Global Appeal to Nine Nuclear Governments, and recommends participating in these events:

 Demand that the Biden administration unfreeze Afghanistan’s assets, return all 7 billion to their country, so they can restart their economy and feed their people.

Hello Senator _____________ I am calling about the one million children in Afghanistan who face death by starvation.                                                                                                                                                 
President Biden should do more immediately.  He should relax sanctions on Afghanistan and increase humanitarian aid through the United Nations. Antonio Guterres, the Secretary General of the United Nations, has warned that millions of Afghans are on the “verge of death,” 22.8 million Afghans – or more than half of the country’s population – will face acute food insecurity this winter and one million children risk dying of malnutrition. 

Pass H.J.Res. 87 and S.J.Res. 56 to end U.S. participation in the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

🥳 Peace and Justice for Yemen🥳 - CODEPINK - Women for Peace

 

 On May 31, 2022, Reps. Peter DeFazio (OR-4), Pramila Jayapal (WA-7), Adam Schiff (CA-28), and Nancy Mace (SC-1) introduced H.J.Res. 87, a bill to end U.S. involvement in the Saudi-led war and blockade in Yemen. On July 14, 2022, Sens. Bernie Sanders (VT), Patrick Leahy (VT), and Elizabeth Warren (MA) introduced an identical resolution (S.J.Res. 56) in the Senate. The war has created one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world, and over 16 million people are on the brink of famine. While the warring parties have entered a temporary truce, Congress must ensure an end to U.S. support for the war and prevent the truce from breaking.

Pass H.J.Res. 87 and S.J.Res. 56 to end U.S. participation in the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

The war has created one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world, and over 16 million people are on the brink of famine. While the warring parties have thankfully entered a temporary truce, Congress must act to ensure an end to U.S. support for the war and prevent the truce from breaking.

On Feb. 4, 2021, President Biden announced that the U.S. would end its support for the coalition’s offensive operations in Yemen, but important aspects of U.S. complicity remain. This includes ongoing maintenance and intelligence sharing for warplanes conducting airstrikes and enforcing an air and sea blockade of Yemen. 

Bipartisan majorities in both chambers of Congress passed a Yemen War Powers Resolution in 2019 to end U.S. support for the Saudi-led war. President Trump vetoed this resolution, but United Nations officials say that congressional action helped promote peace negotiations.  Now, Congress has an historic opportunity to help end U.S participation in one of the most devastating wars in the world.

We urge Congress to pass H.J.Res. 87 and S.J.Res. 56 to terminate unauthorized military involvement in the Saudi-led coalition’s war and blockade.

The War Powers Act must be invoked because:

  • U.S. pressure will ensure Saudi Arabia remains at the negotiating table to turn the truce into a permanent end to the war.
  • The war has led to a humanitarian disaster. Nearly 24 million people are in need of emergency assistance.
  • The war and blockade are killing Yemeni civilians. The UN estimated that the Yemen war led to 377,000 deaths in 2021—nearly 60% of those due to indirect causes such as disruptions in access to food, clean water, and medicine.
  • Yemen’s children are being starved. The UN warned in 2021 that 2.3 million children are suffering from acute malnutrition. 400,000 of these children could die of starvation without urgent action.

  1. The carbon bootprint of the US military, larger than that of many countries. 
  2. The wars for oil and other resources – how they support the fossil fuel-based status quo.
  3. The unequal burden of both climate crisis and militarism on people of color, the poor, and future generations.
  4. The resources spent on militarism and war – redirect to respond to the existential threat of climate crisis.

 
Because it's 100 seconds to midnight,
 
The threat of nuclear war is now higher than it was during the Cold War.
That’s according to former Defense Secretary William Perry -- who is no peacenik.  
 
That’s why it’s more urgent than ever that our Representatives institute a policy of No First Use and No Sole Authority in order to reduce the grave peril posed by nuclear weapons. Ask your Senators and Representative and Congressional leadership to support legislation to institute a United States policy of No First Use of nuclear weapons.
 
It’s important that we act now. President Joe Biden's Nuclear Posture Review is underway, and it will determine his administration’s approach to nuclear policy. If we want to avoid a devastating nuclear war, we need to demonstrate broad public support for a policy of No First Use. Call and Email Congress to tell them to support a No First Use policy for nuclear weapons! 
 
There are two bills in Congress, the Markey-Lieu Bill (S.1148, HR.669) and the Warren-Smith Bill (S.1219, HR.2603), that would institute a No First Use Policy. These bills should be uncontroversial for anyone who wants to avoid a potentially disastrous nuclear war. Yet, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer haven’t used their leadership to make sure these bills get a vote. Call on your Representatives to institute a policy of No First Use and demand that Pelosi and Schumer bring the bills to a vote!
