Once again we are summoned by the commitment of solidarity and unequivocal support for the just cause of the Palestinian people, whose tireless struggle and long resistance are memorable.
Today we do not come to commemorate or pay tribute. The "International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People" is just a moment of remembrance and at the same time of continuous solidarity and claim, which we should keep in mind the remaining 364 days of each year, until the cruel and prolonged injustice suffered by the Palestinian people ceases.
