– The questions of the rights to self-determination of the Palestinians and other oppressed peoples, including the people of Manipur, have not been addressed. This must be addressed on the basis of the universal principles of democratic rights and the aspirations of the peoples who wish to enjoy the rights to self-determination.
– We share the voice of the Palestinian resistance.
– We condemn the continuous illegal occupation of all Palestinian lands by Israel and US funding for the Zionist troops.
– We denounce the Zionist crimes and complicity of their allies. We continue to struggle to break the isolation of the Palestinians under occupation.
