Another nation recognizes Palestine.

January 16, 2011

This month, the government of Chile announced its recognition of Palestine as “a free, independent and sovereign state.”

Five other Latin American governments did so last month — Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Uruguay and Ecuador.

More and more nations are calling for justice in Palestine.  They need to know that they have international public support.

Please email the Chilean government today — lets keep the momentum going.

Last month, five nations officially recognized Palestine. Let’s thank them.

December 30, 2010

In the last month, five different Latin American governments have officially recognized Palestine as a country — Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Uruguay and Ecuador.

Brazil has even marked off land for a new Palestinian Embassy.

These countries have taken action because the Israeli government continues to build Jewish settlements on what is left of Palestinian land.  Meanwhile, our own US Congress forces US taxpayers to subsidize Israel’s anti-peace behavior.

That’s why this new international development is so important.   If more countries recognize Palestine, the United Nations could ultimately seat Palestine as a member of the UN General Assembly.  Not only that, but Israel would face even greater international pressure to end its control of Palestinian life.
