Observance of the 2020 International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People
1 Dec 2020 -  This year, the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People will be observed on 1 December with special meetings. In the UN headquarters in New York, the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, a body of the UN General Assembly promoting the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination and independence, will convene high-level officials of Member States, the Secretary-General, intergovernmental organizations and representatives of civil society who are expected to make statements on the question of Palestine and attend the official launch of a virtual exhibit focusing on the Wall built in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, which has been ruled to be illegal by the International Court of Justice in its Advisory Opinion of 9 July 2004.
The exhibit explores this through the words of various advocates and public personalities, and through images from artists and human rights activists who have used the wall as a canvas to express their solidarity with the Palestinian people.
