reaffirm our adherence to the Right of Return for Palestinian
Refugees. This right is inalienable and non-negotiable. It can’t
be vetoed, circumvented, supplanted or altered. The Right of Return
is a collective and individual right that is irrevocable. Our
people will continue their struggle until it is achieved.
2- We are proud of the struggle and resilience of
the Palestinian people who continue to make great sacrifices,
65 years after the Nakba, against occupation and oppression for
their dignity freedom and self-determination.
3- We express our deep concern over the Israeli
aggressions on Jerusalem and its indigenous Palestinian residents,
especially in the light of growing deportation. We warn against
the systematic discrimination against Jerusalemites which sees
them besieging in their residential areas by settlements and the
apartheid wall. We also warn against the assault on historical
Muslim and Christian sites in Jerusalem.
4- We are proud of the sacrifice and determination
shown by Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, especially their
bravery against unjust Israeli policies. The issue of Palestinian
prisoners is one of our main priorities and we ask the international
community to demand an end to their mistreatment.
5- The conference affirmed the need to intensify
efforts to face the systematic expulsion of Palestinians in the
West Banka and occupied Palestine in 1948 territories. The policy
of apartheid, segregation, annexation of land trough the illegal
wall and settlements should come to an end so people can live
6- The conference salutes the steadfastness of the
people of Gaza. Despite Israeli aggression and a long siege they
remain strong. We vow to continue exposing Israel and its crimes
against the people of Gaza.
7- We condemn the call for land swap between the
state of Palestine and the Israeli regime. We warn that such a
step will jeopardize Palestinian rights and legitimatize Israeli
occupation. It also endangers the rights of Palestinians inside
occupied lands of 1948. We totally reject such plans and reaffirm
our inalienable and legitimate rights.
8- We declare our solidarity with the Syrian people
in their plight. We are extremely fearful of their future and
very concerned over the growing humanitarian crisis where thousands
have died and millions have been displaced. We also call on all
sides in Syria to refrain from dragging the Palestinian refugee
into their internal differences. The camps should always remain
neutral. Humanitarian aid should be offered to Palestinian and
Syrian refugees freely without any restriction.
9- In light of the dreadful conditions that Palestinian
refugees experience in Arab countries, including those fleeing
Iraq and Syria; we call on all Arab countries to treat Palestinian
refugees justly and fairly. We invite the Arab League to investigate
the extent of Arab countries’ commitment to the Casablanca
Protocols of 1965 concerning the treatment of Palestinian refugees.
This should be in accordance with their right of return to occupied
10- We stress the importance of achieving National
Palestinian Unity Agreement between all Palestinian parties. This
should include reforming the Palestinian Liberation Organization
(PLO). This is an indispensable building block within the internal
Palestinian community. This unity would ultimately help to protect
our national rights. Such measures will unite the Palestinian
people and enable them to face Israeli occupation. Additionally,
we call for democratic representation of the Palestinians in Europe.
The conference also calls on Palestinian parties to enforce the
civil NGO work wherever the Palestinian people exist. In this
regard, we call on Europe and the International community to respect
the democratic choices made by the Palestinian people.
11: The conference stresses historical responsibility
of Europe for the Palestinian Nakba and displacement of 1948.
Generations of Palestinian people are still paying the price of
Europe’s mistake and still Europe continues to assist in
the expansion of the state of Israel and its illegal policies.
We announce our full support for the International Campaign demanding
an apology from Britain for the Balfour declaration which marks
the beginning of Palestinian suffering.
12- We commend all efforts by everyone helping the
Palestinians in challenging and confronting Israeli wars, siege
and illegal practices. We urge everyone to remain steadfast and
develop these efforts that support the Palestinian people for
their fight against occupation and injustice towards freedom,
justice, human rights and a democratic Palestine.
