Sustainable Struggle: The Road to Palestine
Al-Awda, The Palestine Right to Return Coalition's Second International Convention


28 January 2004
For immediate release

The fundamental right of Palestinians to return to their homes, from which they were forcefully removed, is under constant threat. Recent efforts to undermine this right have manifested themselves in many forms: the US-sponsored "road map" initiative, the Ayalon-Nussiebeh Initiative, the "Geneva Accord," and the refusal of the international community at large, specifically the US and the UN Security Council, to hold the Zionist state to the tenets of UN resolutions, the Geneva Conventions, and international and humanitarian law.

We invite you to join hundreds of Palestinian activists and their supporters in New York City 16-18 April 2004 for Al-Awda's Second International Convention, "Sustainable Struggle: The Road to Palestine."

There are sharp contrasts between our vision of liberation, justice, and peace, and a discourse based on apartheid, segregation, walls and false peace initiatives. Our vision is gaining grassroots support and fulfils the basic human rights and wishes of native Palestinians, including millions of refugees, for return and self determination. Palestine has regained its rightful place in the anti-war movement as the anchor of the struggle against colonialism world-wide.

During our convention, activists will engage in a weekend of education, training, empowerment, and continued building of the movement for Palestinian self determination and the right of return for all refugees to their original homes, towns and villages.
