International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People Date in the current year: November 29, 2017

International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People A UN international observance International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People annually falls on November 29. This observance was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in 1977, the first appropriate events were organized in 1978.

November 29 was designated International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People to commemorate the adoption of the United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine on November 29, 1947. The plan recommended a termination of the British Mandate and establishment of two independent Jewish and Arab states.

The partition plan wasn't implemented because of the Arab leaders. They argued, that the plan violated the principles of national self-determination in the UN charter, granting people the right to decide their own destiny. Their rejection to implement the plan led to the Arab-Israeli War in 1948 and other consequent conflicts.

The Israeli and Palestine representatives of the national administration still can't find the common language. This International Day of Solidarity was established to encourage all sides to organize and held events, leading to peace, agreement and the end of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
