1. We demand that Israel’s aggression and blockade on the Gaza Strip and the West Bank stop now. We call on the people to continue to take to the streets to struggle, to organize popular mobilizations against Israeli aggression all around the world.
We express our full solidarity with the Palestinian people and condemn the brutal military offensive, the inhuman blockade and the barbarous genocide by the Israel in the Gaza Strip, with thousands of dead civilians, children and elderly, deprived of food, water, medicine and electricity. We denounce the support of the USA, Britain, NATO and the EU for the Israeli offensive.
2. We condemn the decades-long Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories, the killings, imprisonment, persecution and settlements. We defend the right of the Palestinian people to a free homeland, to be masters of their own land. We demand an end to the Israeli occupation, the creation and recognition of an independent Palestinian state, the cessation and dismantling of the illegal settlements in the Palestinian territories, the release of prisoners from Israeli jails, the return of refugees in accordance with UN resolution 194.The occupation of Palestine by Israel, supported by US-NATO imperialism, is the source of the suffering of the Palestinian people, and all the peoples of the region. As long as the occupation continues, the conflicts will continue, the peoples will be prevented from living in peace, they will be in danger of being caught in the vortex of a generalised war.
3. The CYOs signing the joint declaration express their internationalist solidarity and call upon the workers, the peoples, the youth, in all countries to strengthen the struggle to stop the massacre in the Gaza Strip and end the occupation of Palestine by Israel to express decisive solidarity with the just struggle of the Palestinian people.
