Location: Amman – Jordan
Restrictions: A24 Clients
Party members and activists staged a sit-in on the 74th anniversary of the Nakba outside the UN Headquarters, to express their rejection of the international silence on the violations committed inside the West bank.
Party representatives handed over a message to the United Nations representative in Amman, to deliver it to the Secretary-General of the UN, Antonio Guterres.
The message included several topics such as stopping the policy of double standards in dealing with the right of people to resist occupation and implementing resolutions that guarantee the right of the Palestinian people to return to their land.
Soundbite (Zaher Amro – Dormer Secretary-General of the Life Party):
“We came to deliver a message to the United Nations, which represents humanity and justice. We came to remind it to implement its resolutions proving the right of Muslims to Al-Aqsa and Jerusalem. Unfortunately, the United Nations, which is supposed to protect peace and nations changed into an organization that adheres to global Zionist decisions that have nothing to do with human rights.”
Soundbite (Majd Al-Faraj – Member of the Popular Unity Party):
“We are here to confirm our support for, the Palestinian cause, which also represents the Jordanians. Undoubtedly our position is not only solidarity with the Palestinian cause, but it is an integral part of us.”
Soundbite (Abdel-Fattah Al-Kilani – Secretary-General of the Life Party):
“We came today on the 74th anniversary of Nakba to send a message to the UN Secretary-General’s office and to remind the UN of the hundreds of resolutions that were issued in favor of Jerusalem and Palestine. We ask to consider that the Palestinians are a resistance to the Zionist occupation just as the Ukrainian is anti-Russian.”
Soundbite (Muhammad Al-Bashir – Member of the National Forum to Support the Resistance and Protect the Homeland):
“This sit-in is to confirm once again that we continue to support our Palestinian people, and that we are part of it, demanding the Zionist gangs to leave.”
