International solidarity day has seen hundreds of demonstrations and activities in solidarity with Palestine take place across the world.

This highlights the international solidarity with the Palestinian people alongside the tremendous growth of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions campaign.

International solidarity day was also celebrated in the occupied Palestinian territories, where demonstrations swept the region. This confirms the continuity of the Palestinian uprising.

These were non-violent popular demonstrations, however, as usual, they were countered with Israel violence.

The uprising is enhancing solidarity with Palestine all over the world.

Nelson Mandela, the late leader of South Africa’s anti-apartheid struggle, described the issue of Palestine as, “the greatest moral issue of our time.”

The level of solidarity, on an international scale, reflects his message.  

On the other hand, Israeli oppression has now taken the lives of 103 Palestinians and injured 12000 since October.

This oppression, which is now isolating and ghettoizing communities in the West bank and Jerusalem, is additional proof of the aggressive and racist policy of the Israeli occupation state. It will only lead to greater isolation of Israel in the international community.
