Day of Solidarity
with the Palestinians
The United Nations spearheads the celebration on Friday of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.
The UN General Assembly, in 1977, called for the annual observance of Nov. 29 as the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People through Resolution 32/40 B. On that day, in 1947, the Assembly adopted the resolution on the partition of Palestine (Resolution 181 (II)).
In Resolution 60/37 of Dec. 1, 2005, the Assembly requested the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People and the Division for Palestinian Rights, as part of the observance of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People to continue to organize an annual exhibit on Palestinian rights or a cultural event in cooperation with the Permanent Observer Mission of Palestine to the UN.
The resolution on the observance of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People also encourages Member States to continue to give the widest support and publicity to the observance of the Day of Solidarity.
UN opens today the exhibit, “Palestine – the Most Universal of National Causes” – consisting of pictures and quotes by well-known public figures, who have expressed solidarity with the Palestinian people.
The exhibit will be held in the UN Headquarters visitor’s lobby. It will run until Jan. 6.*
