Global Protests Demand: U.S. and Zionist Hands off Jerusalem, the Capital of Palestine!

Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network joins with the Palestinian people and the international movement for justice in Palestine in condemning in the strongest terms U.S. President Donald Trump’s colonial declaration of “recognition” of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on Wednesday, 6 December. See the list below of global actions for Jerusalem, Palestine:

This attempt to legitimize colonization, apartheid, occupation and land theft will do nothing to erase the Arab identity and Palestinian character of Jerusalem, the capital of Palestine. It only undermines the utterly false nature of any so-called “peace process” under U.S. auspices and the reality of U.S. imperialism as the primary partner of the Israeli occupation state and Zionist racism and an extreme threat to the Palestinian people and all forces of justice in the world.

It must be noted that this is an extension of the same U.S. policy that imprisons and deports Palestinians for supporting their people, that has attempted to impose the Oslo process on Palestine, that provides $3 billion dollars in killer military aid to the Israeli occupation army each year. Furthermore, this policy has enjoyed overwhelming bipartisan support, with Democrats and Republicans lining up to attack the Palestinian people and strip them of their rights.

It also comes as thousands of Palestinian Jerusalemites are imprisoned and countless more face stripping of their residency, home demolitions, land confiscation, settler violence and a project of ethnic cleansing that has gone on for 70 years.

This declaration coming as it does on the 100th anniversary of the Balfour declaration, as Trump repeatedly invoked the word “promise” in his speech, seeks to renew the spirit of Balfour through another imperialist colonizer promising land that is not his to give. The Palestinian people are making it clear on the streets of Palestine that Jerusalem will always be the capital of the Palestinian people, and neither Trump nor all of the might of U.S. imperialism and the Zionist movement will change that reality.

From Haifa, to Yafa, to Jerusalem, to Gaza, to Ramallah, Palestine and its people will never be defeated, colonialism and land theft will not be legitimized through imperial declarations, and millions of Palestinian refugees will return to their liberated homeland.

We urge all supporters of Palestine to join the rallies around the world to support Palestinian resistance to Trump’s declaration.

We will add additional events to the list below as we become aware of them! Please email us at samidoun@samidoun.net or message us on Facebook to let us know about your protests to stand with Jerusalem and with Palestine!
