The Partido Lakas ng Masa (PLM) supports the Palestinian bid for statehood and its submission to the UN for an independent Palestinian state. We call on the Philippine government to vote in favor of this submission and campaign at the United Nations for its passage. We condemn the US government attempts to block and veto the resolution in favor of its hardened support for Israel.

We support the historical struggle of the Palestinian people for a democratic and secular Palestine in which Arabs, Jews and other people can live in peace. We reject the fallacy that the Israeli state has a biblical claim to its existence.

The state of Israel is a recent creation established only in 1948 as a result of a conscious policy of resettlement of European Jews who were fleeing the fascist holocaust against them. This resettlement was engineered by the then imperialist powers led by Britain and the newly formed Zionist movement.

The Israeli state is founded on the ideology of Zionism which is a sectarian and racist ideology based on the dispossession, exploitation and apartheid-style discrimination of the Palestinian Arab population. This dispossession was carried out violently and brutally with the massacre of the original Palestinian population in order to resettle the European Jews and establish a Zionist Israeli state.

The dispossed Palestinians are now forced to live in Bantustan-style settlement in the West Bank and Gaza Strip under Israeli occupation. Israel continues to build Jewish settlement and encroach even on these small pieces of Palestine land. Meanwhile the Palestinians who fled the violent occupation have no right of return even today.

Support the Palestinian bid for UN membership!

Support the right of return and end the diaspora of the Palestinian people!

Stop the building of Israeli settlement! For a democratic and secular Palestine!
