A cultural exhibit presented by the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People in cooperation with the Permanent Observer Mission of Palestine to the United Nations will be opened at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, 29 November, in the Public Lobby of the General Assembly building.  It is organized in connection with the annual observance of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.
