We are a transnational, independent, grassroots movement of young Palestinians dedicated to the liberation of our homeland and people.

We, Palestinian youth in exile, call on all Palestinians and our allies to defend our homeland and support the resistance and steadfastness of our people in Palestine. In recent weeks, Al-Aqsa Mosque has been the target of particularly brutal assaults while arbitrary killings are committed daily by the Zionist military and settlers and mass youth arrests are implemented in Palestine. In response to this Zionist violence, we must recognise that resistance is a mandatory element to surviving in the face of an ongoing project of ethnic cleansing of Palestinians.

The intersections of Zionist military enforcement, settler encroachment, and a complacent Palestinian leadership who are serving as the gatekeepers to occupation and no longer the forerunners of the liberation project, culminate to ensure the suppression of resistance and the acceleration of ethnic cleansing. In this unbalanced struggle between a racist project and the heroic resistance of the Palestinian people, Israel still enjoys the support of its allies whom we hold accountable for all these crimes.

However, we as Palestinian youth must assume our full rights and responsibilities to defend our people and our land and take action wherever we are.  

The current struggle in all of Palestine is ours; it is a question of making justice prevail over a colonial project, and of standing against colonialism in all its forms and manifestations. This struggle is the uprising of a new generation of Palestinians, united everywhere around principles of dignity, justice and the liberation of all Palestine!

We share the voice of the Palestinian resistance. We denounce the Zionist crimes and complicity of their allies. We break the isolation of the Palestinians under occupation.

We call on all the Palestinians in exile, the solidarity movement and all the people who believe in justice, to continue all mobilisation efforts and to join us in support of the Palestinian resistance culminating in international mobilisation on November 29, 2015 and ongoing until Palestine is free. 

By choosing the “UN international day of solidarity with the Palestinian people” we re-affirm that solidarity is only genuine if it respects the full Palestinian national principles, the role of all Palestinian communities everywhere in their liberation struggle, and the legitimacy of Palestinian resistance.

Stop the Zionist occupation and colonization of all Palestine
Full support for the Palestinian resistance
Freedom for the Palestinian prisoners
Return of Palestinian refugees
Stop the complicit silence of the International Community
