What is the aim of this WSF Free Palestine?

The WSF Free Palestine process has at its core the global encounter in Porto Alegre based on broad-based popular and civil society mobilizations from around the world. It aims to:

1) Show the strength of solidarity with the calls of the Palestinian people and the diversity of initiatives and actions aimed at promoting justice and peace in the region.

2) Create effective actions to ensure Palestinian self-determination, the creation of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital, and the fulfillment of human rights and international law, by:

a) Ending Israeli occupation and colonization of all Arab lands and dismantling the Wall;

b) Ensuring the fundamental rights of the Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality; and

c) Implementing, protecting, and promoting the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN resolution 194.

3) Be a space for discussion, exchange of ideas, strategizing, and planning in order to improve the structure of solidarity.
