The International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People
|Friday, December 4,2009 13:23|
In 1977, the UN General Assembly (UNGA) called for the annual observance of 29 November as the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People (resolution 32/40 B).
On that day, in 1947, the Assembly adopted the resolution on the partition of Palestine.
On 3 December 2001, the UNGA noted the action taken by Member States to observe the Day, and requested them to continue to give it the widest possible publicity.
In resolution 60/37 of 1 December 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 on 29 November, 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. It also encouraged Member States to continue to give the widest support and publicity to the observance of the Day of Solidarity.
