Campaigning for Palestine
ActionAid Palestine (AAP) organized the second international Youth Gathering (IYG) in solidarity with Palestine in Tanzania with participation of 32 African, European and Palestinian young people through its programme of “Civic and Democratic Participation of Palestinian Youth”. AAP brings Palestinian youth from Gaza, West Bank, Green Line and Diaspora with international pioneers together to take part in an international advocacy and solidarity youth campaign advocating for justice, peace and self-determination for the Palestinians.
Youth will be engaged in different raising awareness activities and discussions about many Palestinian issues and history including human rights abuses in the occupied Palestinian territories, the violations of international law and the historical causes of the injustices to the Palestinians as a way of advocacy aiming to convey the Palestinian messages locally, regionally and internationally
Participants will learn the skills they need to lead campaigns in their communities and advocate for the rights of Palestinians. Youth-led campaigns will focus on advocating for justice through public media campaigns.
AAP tries to motivate youth all over the world in order to mobilize their community -related networks in forming joint positions, statements and actions that show active solidarity with Palestine and to lobby their governments to adopt more positive positions on Palestine
