International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People on November 29

“The United Nations' (UN) International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People is annually observed on November 29 across the world, including Pakistan to show solidarity with the Palestinian people.
The day is also known as Solidarity Day that provides an opportunity for the international community to focus its attention on the fact that the question of Palestine is still unresolved and that the Palestinian people are yet to attain their inalienable rights as defined by the General Assembly, namely, the right to self-determination without external interference, the right to national independence and sovereignty, and the right to return to their homes and property from which they had been displaced.
Special meetings are held to observe Solidarity Day in some UN offices, councils, government bodies and organisations that have a special interest in the issues encompassing the event.”
