YWCA: Solidarity with Palestine
A joint statement of the YWCA of Palestine and the World YWCA
On 29 November 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 74 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.
