Twitterstorm! Monday December 18 We Demand: End the Genocidal U.S. Blockade Against Cuba

Once again the United States has violated the mandate of the UN, the multiple resolutions issued for more than six decades, the right of the heroic Palestinian people and International Law, by designating the city of Jerusalem as the capital of the Zionist state of Israel and move the headquarters of the US embassy to that city.

This unilateral, arbitrary and colonial declaration will raise the tensions in the Middle East to an unprecedented degree and in fact represents a brutal provocation.

The International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity strongly rejects the decision adopted by the Trump administration that violates the right of the Palestinian people to their sacred land with East Jerusalem as its capital.
