Palestine 100 years after Balfour
100 years ago the Balfour Declaration pledged Britain’s support for a ‘national home’ in Palestine for the Jewish people, on the understanding that the rights of ‘existing non-jewish communities in Palestine’ would not be prejudiced.
The first part of this pledge led to the establishment of the state of Israel. But Britain reneged on the the second part, leaving Palestinians dispossessed and living as refugees or under occupation.
The resulting suffering and conflict has gone on far too long. It is time to acknowledge Britain’s broken promises, and bring justice and equal rights to everyone living in Israel and Palestine. Come and hear first-hand accounts of the plight of Palestinians today, and join the discussion of how we can support Palestinians and Israelis to build a peaceful future based on equal rights for all.
