29 November 2009


Have people forgotten this day??? Get posting about this folks, nothing much in the media today, so get to work:

LINK The UN General Assembly (UNGA) declared 29 November as the International Day of Solidarity with Palestinian People in 1977. On the same day in 1947, the General Assembly had 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. For more information, please see: http://www.un.org/depts/dhl/palestinian/
