Political statement From the River to the Sea, Palestine Will Be Free

At present, a single government and its military controls the fate of all those residing between the Mediterranean and the Jordan River, denying full civil rights and access to resources to Palestinians, in violation of international law. With this in mind, we support the following principles:

  1. We oppose racism, hatred, and oppression in all their forms.
  2. We advocate for a UK foreign policy based on peace, justice, democracy, human rights and respect for international law.
  3. Any just solution in Israel/Palestine must involve full civil rights and equal access to all resources for all its inhabitants regardless of national origin, religion, race, language or gender.
  4. We support an end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights.
  5. To achieve peace and justice, the Palestinian refugee problem must be resolved in accordance with international law and equity. This includes the Palestinian right of return as mandated by UN Resolution 194.

We call for an end to all violence against civilians in Israel/Palestine.
