Student Organizations Resolve to Organize Nationally for Palestine

At the closing session of the National Students for Justice in Palestine Conference, on October 16, 2011, students voted to endorse the following Points of Unity:

Students for Justice in Palestine is a student organization that works in solidarity with the Palestinian people and supports their right to self-determination.

It is committed to:

1. Ending Israel’s occupation and colonization of all Arab lands and dismantling the Wall;

2. Recognizing the fundamental rights of the Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality; and

3. Respecting, protecting and promoting the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN resolution 194.

Over 350 students from more than 100 American universities attended the National Students for Justice in Palestine Conference at Columbia University. In the coming weeks, participating student organizations will consider and vote on proposals for a national structure that will mark the beginning of a new era in Palestine solidarity organizing in the United States.
