Speaking at the EuroPal Forum seminar on The Politics of Reconstruction: Gaza, the EU, and Palestinian Governance, which took place at the European parliament this Tuesday 26th May, along with the chairman of ECCP Mr Pierre Galand and Hamas lawyer in the European court Ms Liliane Glock.
EuroPal Forum took a number of on-ground steps to expand its official European network as a part of its efforts to create a more balanced understanding of the Palestinian issues. . This comes as a practical interpretation of its mission to build a comprehensive European support that includes both grassroots and official decision-making bodies to help the Palestinians to gain their rights.
In 1977, the UN General Assembly called for an annual observance of 29 of November to mark the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. This initiative came to emphasise the UN’s commitment to Palestinian self determination and the recognition of their national rights.
