Hi everyone! This is Amany from YWCA Palestine and today, I am taking over World YWCA social media. November 29 marks the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. On this day back in 1947, the UN General Assembly adopted Resolution 181, which calls for the partition of Palestine into two states: One for the Jewish people and another for the Arab Palestinians. The resolution demands that Palestinians have the right to national independence and a sovereign state, yet 73 years later, they remain under military occupation. They continue to be forcibly displaced from their homes and lands and robbed of their right to self-determination. On this day, I call on UN Member States and individuals globally alike to support efforts made to end the ongoing military occupation of Palestine and achieve #justpeace. 🇵🇸
