CIR calls to declare 30 March as Int’l day of solidarity with demands of Palestinian people

Council on International Relations – Palestine called upon activists around the world to declare 30 March as a day of international solidarity with the demands of the Palestinian people to break the siege, return and freedom.

The Council underscored in a statement issued on Monday the appeal made by the Higher National Commission of Great March of Return and Breaking the Siege, which called upon the solidarity movements, civil society organizations and all the free people to participate in this International Day.

The Council noted in its statement the importance of the Great Rerun March (GMR), one year after its launch, as it continues to be a strong response to the continuation of the siege on the Gaza Strip and a strong message that the Palestinian people will not relinquish their rights.

The Council said that the crimes of the occupation committed against participants in the GMR, in which 254 Palestinians were killed and over 26,000 injured so far, will not dissuade the Palestinian people from exercising their right to resist this occupation by all possible means guaranteed by international law.

The Higher National Commission of Great March of Return and Breaking the Siege has appealed to the solidarity movements, civil society organizations and all the world’s free and human rights advocates to declare Saturday, March 30, the forty-third anniversary of Palestinian Land Day, the first anniversary of the launch of the GMR a day of international solidarity with the demands of the Palestinian people to break the siege, return and freedom.

The Commission called for the implementation of various solidarity activities, especially demonstrations and festivals in capitals and major cities in all countries of the world to demand the breaking of the immoral and illegal siege on the Gaza Strip and to affirm the right of the Palestinian people to freedom and return to the homes they were forcibly displaced from.
