November 29 – International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People

The Section of International Relations of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) issued a statement on the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People on 29 November 2022, stressing the following:

“On the occasion of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, the KKE expresses its full support for the just struggle of the Palestinians, which is an inspiration for the just popular struggle of the workers all over the world. 
With the long-lasting support of the USA, EU, NATO and their allies, the aggression of the Israeli state in Palestine and in the wider region is intensifying and the so-called “Abraham Accords” are used as a vehicle for painful “arrangements” which are being promoted, at the expense of all the Palestinian people's rights.

Today, when the imperialist war of the USA, EU and NATO with capitalist Russia in the territory of Ukraine "overshadows" the decades-long drama of the Palestinian people, we once more confirm that the right side of history is the side of social progress, the side of ending all foreign occupation, with the peoples being masters in their land.

The strengthening of internationalist solidarity and action against the Israeli occupation, the imperialist interventions and the plans of the bourgeois classes becomes even more necessary at present.

The KKE calls on the people to continue to express even more actively their multiform solidarity with the Palestinian people, condemning the daily crimes of the Israeli occupation against the Palestinians and demanding:
  •     The end of the Israeli occupation and its consequences.
  •     The creation of a single, independent Palestinian state, with East Jerusalem as its capital, at the 1967 borders.
  •     The right of return of all Palestinian refugees to their homes, on the basis of the relevant UN resolutions.
  •     The immediate release of all Palestinian and other political prisoners held in Israeli prisons.”

WFTU solidarity declaration with the Palestinian people

On the occasion of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People on the 29th of November, the WFTU reiterates its support and solidarity with the Palestinian people and their daily just struggle.

The year 2022 is one of the bloodiest years for the Palestinian people, the Israeli attacks resulted in 160 deaths recorded both in the West Bank and Gaza Strip since the beginning of the year, while many thousands were injured. Also, 5300 Palestinians were detained and imprisoned by the occupation forces including 620 children.

The murderous state of Israel instead of being condemned and punished for its crimes against humanity, it gets praise and support and a political cover from the leaders of the USA, EU and NATO, the so-called ”free world”.  Israel gets billions of dollars in support from the imperialists instead of sanctions, while the Palestinian people live daily in fear of being arrested or killed for no reason but for being Palestinians. The WFTU condemns the imperialists’ hypocrisy and their two standards policy. At the same time, we denounce the equal distance policy of the ITUC and the yellow unions, and international silence towards the Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people.

The International class-oriented trade union movement denounces the daily attacks of the Israeli occupation forces, the murders, detentions, displacement, and targeting of workers, women and children.

The WFTU representing 105 million workers in 133 countries, expresses its unwavering support and long-standing internationalist solidarity with the heroic Palestinian people in their struggle for an independent homeland to live in freedom and their unalienable right to self-determination, their right to decide freely and democratically for their own present and future.

The WFTU firmly stands beside the Palestinian people since its foundation in 1945 with solidarity campaigns, demonstrations, protests, and practical support all the years and will always fight alongside the Palestinian people until the final victory. The WFTU and its militant affiliates have been and will always be on the right side of history with class solidarity and internationalism which are our strongest weapons against the barbaric Israeli state and its allies.

The WFTU continues the struggle alongside the Palestinian people for:
  •     The recognition of the Palestinian state on the 1967 borders and east Jerusalem as its capital.
  •     Put an end to the construction of settlements and the withdrawal of all settlers who settled across the 1967 borders.
  •     The demolition of the apartheid wall in Jerusalem.
  •     The right of all Palestinian refugees to return to their homes, based on the relevant decisions of the UN.
  •     The elimination of any exclusion or discrimination against the Palestinians in the West Bank and the Gaza strip
  •     The immediate release of all the political prisoners who are kept in Israeli prisons.
  •     The withdrawal of the Israeli army from all the occupied territories of 1967, including the Golan Heights and the Sheba area of Southern Lebanon.

The WFTU, on the occasion of the International Solidarity Day on November 29, 2022, calls upon all its affiliates and friends, the class-oriented militant trade unions to express their solidarity with every possible way.

The Secretariat.


PAME: Solidarity witth the heroic people of Palestine

On the occasion of the November 29 International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, PAME calls on the workers and trade unions of Greece to continue their constant solidarity with the heroic people of Palestine against the murderous Israeli occupation.

The crime continues.  The Resistance does not stop, solidarity will grow stronger.

The class trade unions of Greece condemn the imperialist barbarity of the murdering state of Israel and with new actions and initiatives we will strengthen our solidarity with the just struggle of the people of Palestine. We denounce the selective and hypocritical sensitivity, the double standards of the imperialists of the EU-NATO-USA and the governments who, while supposedly caring about human rights, the children victims of wars, the women who are oppressed, suddenly remain silent when these crimes are committed by the Israeli army, when the hand that strikes a woman is Israeli, or when the child who is killed was born in Palestine.

We do not forget. We continue steadfastly and unwaveringly on the side of the people of Palestine, until the final victory!

For Palestine Free and Independent on the borders of ’67!

Immediate release of all political prisoners in Israeli prisons.

To stop all political-economic-military cooperation of the Greek State with the murdering state of Israel.
