"But in my opinion, they (the Jews) have erred grievously in seeking to impose themselves on Palestine with the aid of America and Britain and now with the aid of naked terrorism. Why should they depend on American money or British arms for forcing themselves on an unwelcome land?
Why should they resort to terrorism to make good their forcible landing in Palestine?" –
Mahatma Gandhi (1946)
“The Zionists are a threat to World Peace” - Bharat Ratna Dr. Baba Saheb Ambedkar (1949)
"When the Palestinians are free, our struggle will be complete." – Nelson Mandela (1994)
The IPSF is an alliance of Indian social movements & people's organizations that are organizing a conference in solidarity with the courageous Palestinian people in their struggle for an independent sovereign nation. In keeping with our rich historical anti-colonial traditions, it is now our collective national endeavour to consolidate & rebuild a Palestine solidarity movement across India.
This is the very national alliance that has been instrumental in successfully organizing the First Asian Convoy to Gaza, as well as the Global March to Jerusalem. This was also possible due to the collective effort of our Asian allies, namely the Asian People's Solidarity for Palestine (APSP).
Thus this international conference is part of the larger struggle against Zionism & Imperialism that are now an increasing threat to our national sovereignty & world peace. This conference holds the promise & potential of building a nation-wide network. Delegates & friends from many Asian & Western nations have confirmed their presence.
The International Delegates include those from:-
Palestine: Basel Mansour, Hasan Karaka, Vida Warde, Mahmoud Halimeh, Hisham Jamjoum, Said Dawoud, Salah Khawaja & Samer.
