International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People
29 November 2017 marks the annual International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people, pursuant to United Nations (UN) General Assembly resolution 32/40 B of 2 December 1977. On the same day, 29 November in 1947, the General Assembly adopted the resolution on the partition of Palestine (resolution 181 (II)). It constitutes a somber watershed in Palestinian history and collective memory as their fate as perennial oppressed, dispossessed and exiled people was subsequently sealed. 70 years have elapsed since the UN’s adoption of told resolution, pursuant to which Israel was established beyond the borders allocated by the partition resolution, leading to the Palestinians’ Nakba – the obliteration of entire villages and families from earth and the expulsion and flight of more than 700,000 Palestinians.
