CALL TO ACTION: Right to Education International Week of Action – 15th-22nd November 2010
CALL TO ACTION, Right to Education Campaign, 14 September 2010
CALL TO ACTION: Right to Education International Week of Action
15th-22nd November 2010
We demand that Palestinian rights are recognised.
We demand that the international community insist on Israel’s compliance with international law.
We now call upon student groups who stand in solidarity with the struggle for Palestinian rights to participate in the Right to Education International Week of Action, a vision which emerged from the recent Right to Education International Student Conference.
A primary goal of the Week of Action is to allow Palestinian students and academics a platform to share knowledge and experience of the Palestinian struggle for education and to call for an end to the denial of Palestinian educational rights as an objective of Israel’s occupation of Palestine.
To participate in the week, receive additional information, materials or advice, or to submit ideas for the Week of Action, please contact the Right to Education Campaign – Birzeit University.
