 WEBINAR - Palestinian views on annexation

Perspectives on Israel’s annexation plans from Belgian development partners.

Israel’s new emergency government was sworn in on the 17th of May. The coalition agreement permits the Prime Minister to introduce legislation to annex parts of the West Bank, as per July 1st. Any annexation, small or large, of Occupied Palestinian Territory (oPt) constitutes a flagrant violation of international law.

The Belgian Federal Parliamentary Committee on External Relations recently approved two resolutions. One regarding the recognition of the State of Palestine and the second one with regards to annexation. The vote in the full parliamentary chamber will likely take place on the 25th of July.

Palestinian organizations have been stepping up their responses to the current developments and are best placed to testify on the consequences of annexation for their daily lives and work. Many of them are financed by the Belgian DGD and closely related to some Belgian NGO members of the Middle East Platform. From their particular perspectives (workers, women and girls and agriculture) they will talk about the present situation, what they foresee in the near future if de jure annexation takes place and what they expect from the international community.
