Palestinians Tell the World: Sovereignty Means Securing ALL Our Rights!

Palestinians and their supporters everywhere are mobilizing to remind the world of their right to self-determination. In New York we are marching to the United Nations because the world's attention is focused on the vote on Palestine scheduled to take place there.

Right of Return for Palestinians NOW!
