Solidarity with Palestenian People

In its resolution A/68/12 of 26 November 2013, the General Assembly decided to proclaim 2014 the International Year of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.

In 1977, the General Assembly 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 (resolution 181 (II))

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.

The observance of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People also encouraged Member States to continue to give the widest support and publicity to the observance of the Day of Solidarity.

On Monday, 25 November 2013, the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People ‎held a special meeting (356th meeting), in observance of the International Day of ‎Solidarity with the Palestinian People, from 10:00 to ‎‎13:00, in the Economic and Social Council Chamber (CB), in accordance with General ‎Assembly resolution 32/40 B of 2 December 1977.‎
