The Land is Ours

OneVoice Palestine (OVP) launched “The Land is Ours” campaign September 25 to encourage young Palestinians to participate in non-violent resistance to end the occupation, realize the two-state solution, and establish an independent Palestinian state on the 1967 lines with East Jerusalem as its capital.

The campaign builds on the 2012 mobilization effort – “The Land is Ours, Leave Us Be” – which addressed the expansion of settlements by planting hundreds of trees in a number of areas threatened by confiscation.

“The aftermath of the events that accompanied the Israeli attack on Gaza confirmed the importance of strengthening public participation in political life,” said OVP Executive Director Samer Makhlouf. “It is very urgent to start dealing with the aftermath of the war on Gaza as there have been some serious setbacks to the Palestinian roadmap and national agenda adopted by the PLO. The political and diplomatic effort of the Palestinian leadership to achieve the two-state solution must: be matched by massive activities on the ground to protect Palestinians’ national rights, unite all Palestinians behind one political agenda carried out by the PLO, and reach a just and comprehensive peace agreement that preserves our Palestinian rights.”
