Introduction

On November 29, we come together to recognize and celebrate International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. This annual observance was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1977 to raise awareness about the ongoing struggle for self-determination and independence of the Palestinian people. It's a day to show solidarity and support for their rights, as well as honor their rich culture and history. Let's take this opportunity to educate ourselves and stand in solidarity with our Palestinian brothers and sisters!
