International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian Citizens of Israel

Int. Day of Solidarity

To mark the International Day of Solidarity with Palestinian Citizens of Israel on January 30th, the Embassy organized, at its premises, a panel discussion in Canberra for members of the Australian-Palestinian and Australian-Arab community as well as representatives of the Arabic Diplomatic Corp. The panel addressed a number of barriers and hardships facing the Palestinian community in Israel and emphasized on the worrying trends exhibited by the Netanyahu government toward greater incitement, prejudice and discrimination against the Palestinian community in Israel. To highlight the importance of this day, the Embassy issued a press release requesting the Australian community to observe the day, and provided Australian advocacy groups with briefing notes detailing the situation. Participants were encouraged to demonstrate symbolic actions in solidarity with the Palestinian Citizens of Israel.
