  • Description

    MR. ABU OMAR, REPRESENTING THE AL FATAH ORGANISATION, SPOKE TO ARAB STUDENTS TODAY (FRIDAY, APRIL 3) ABOUT THE PALESTINE SOLIDARITY CAMPAIGN. THE MEETING TOOK PLACE AT THE EMBASSY OF THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC IN CHESTERFIELD GARDENS, LONDON.

    IN HIS SPEECH, MR. OMAR SAID THAT THE PURPOSE OF THE AL FATAH GROUP WAS NOT JUST TO FIGHT THE ISRAELIS AND EVENTUALLY FORCE THEM TO LEAVE PALESTINE, BUT ALSO SOUGHT TO LIBERATE THE COUNTRY SO THAT PALESTINIANS OF ALL FAITHS COULD LIVE THERE. ACCORDING TO MR. OMAR, A LIBERATED PALESTINE WOULD HAVE A DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT WHICH WOULD GUARANTEE EQUAL RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES FOR ALL. AL FATAH, HE CONTINUED, DID NOT BELIEVE THAT CASTING THE JEWS AS PERSECUTORS HELPED TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM.

    THE PALESTINE SOLIDARITY CAMPAIGN (PSC) HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED TO ORGANISE ALL SOLIDARITY GROUPS IN BRITAIN WITH THE PALESTINIAN LIBERATION MOVEMENT.

    HERE IS AN EXTRACT FROM MR. OMAR'S REMARKS.
